My 13-year-old daughter wanted to see the movie, The Artist. I have to admit, with all the Oscar buzz, I was kind of curious about it myself. A black & white, silent movie up for 10 Oscar nominations? This is the year 2012, correct?
She & I went to see the movie last night. We were the youngest people in the theater. LOL
Actually, I shouldn't be laughing because honestly, that's a downright shame. Young people don't know what they're missing. We loved this movie, really loved it....that's coming from me, the 13-year-old & all the other people over 75 in attendance. At several times throughout the movie, I looked over at my daughter. I saw her face in total awe, eyes wide with a hint of a smile on her lips. She was taken in and I can't say as I blame her.
So, if you're looking to see an excellent movie, one unlike anything else out there, take a chance & see The Artist. Not to sound like a movie critic, but I think it's a piece of cinematic genius.
