The Artist is lovely

5 second plot: George Valentin is a big movie star in silent movies. He meets a beautiful young dancer at the start of her career. When silent movies become talkies she rises to stardom but George's star slowly fades.

5 second review: How in the world does a movie idea like this get picked up by a production company? And who in the world would expect this movie to do this well? I would not have guessed it in a million years. It's weird, because it's a silent movie about the birth of talking movies. But it's lovely. And Peppy is such a sweetheart. I love her.
