See This: The Artist

Last night I finally had the chance to see The Artist. I know, I know, I've heard as much hype as you have, which is pretty much why I was avoiding it until now. Plus, a silent film? Didn't sound interesting at all.
I'm happy to announce that (wait for it, because it doesn't happen very often) I was wrong. This movie is incredible. It's fun, romantic, beautiful, interesting, and extremely entertaining. Plus, it's like being thrown back in time to a much simpler era. I loved everything about it.
Especially fantastic? The two leads. Wow, talk about onscreen chemistry! They both just lit up the screen with their magnificent presence and could relate a million emotions with their faces - no words necessary. I really didn't think I'd like a silent film, but in this case I'll make an exception. Plus, the dog, Uggie, is the cutest! He was a huge bonus! Now I'm even more stoked about meeting the lead actor, Jean Dujardin, a few weeks back. Last night I was able to meet a few more cast members, but Berenice, sadly, didn't come (that's the one I wanted to meet). Oh well, I'm sure I'll see her another day. If you get a chance, make time for The Artist! You won't be disappointed.
