Hollywood, 1927: Outside a movie premiere, enthusiastic fan Peppy Miller literally bumps into the swashbuckling hero of the silent film, George Valentin. The star reacts graciously and Peppy plants a kiss on his cheek as they are surrounded by photographers. The headlines demand: "Who's That Girl?" and Peppy is inspired to audition for a dancing bit-part at the studio. However as Peppy slowly rises through the industry, the introduction of talking-pictures turns Valentin's world upside-down.

This French romantic comedy film was directed by Michel Hazanavicius and stars Jean Dujardin & Bérénice Bejo. Most of the film itself is silent (except for the soundtrack) & was produced in black-and-white.  

2012 Academy Award winner of Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Costume Design and Best Original Score.
