Nuffnang The Artist screening, Cloche Hats, and a DVD Giveaway!

Thursday, June 21, 2012

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending a Nuffnang Gold Class screening of the award winning movie The Artist thanks to Roadshow Entertainment to celebrate the DVD and Blu Ray release on the 28th of June.

I didn't know much about The Artist other than it being a silent movie, nor had I seen the trailer.  I was suprisingly captivated by its beauty in so many ways; the actors, the costumes, the gorgeous little dog, the story, and little snippets of tap dancing.

Without giving too much away, The Artist is set during the Twilight of Hollywood's silent era, shot on location in Los Angeles.  The story follows a charismatic movie star, coming to terms with the end of an era in black and white silent movies, as silent movie actors are replaced by 'fresh blood', with the introduction of talking movies.


Before you question how one could possibly enjoy a movie without sound, fear not, as music, gesture and expression, replace words in an imaginable, enjoyably way.   Who knew a film could be so enjoyable, without talking?


View The Artist Trailer here


Bérénice Bejo plays the female lead Peppy Miller.  She is strikingly beautiful and fits into the era  fabulously, wearing the most stunning costumes representing the 1920's/early 30's.  I loved her collection of cloche (bell shape) hat's



Then there's dashing George (played by Jean Dujardin) with his slick hair, arched eyebrow, and whisper thin 'tash!






This movie is for dog lovers too, as Jack Russell Uggie plays a lead part in the movie, he is adorable.

 

I have a copy of The Artist on DVD to giveaway to one Recycled Fashion reader, if you'd like to win it, please leave a comment below, extra entries if you retweet the giveaway, or share the competition on facebook, leave a comment below for each additional activity you do.  Winner will be drawn next Friday 29th June, please remember to provide a way of contacting you (email).  National and international entries welcome, however please only enter if your DVD player supports PAL region 4 DVD.

Don't worry about entering me in the giveaway as I'm not sure it would play on my UK player anyway but just wanted to say thanks for reviewing it. I wanted to see it when it was released in the cinema here but never got around to it, so shall hunt down a copy. M x

I would love to win this! Have heard beautiful reviews from family and friends but have yet to see this.

I know they scooped the Best Picture and Best Actor award (plus more!) during the Oscars.

I would love to have a copy so I can bask in the simplicity and pure beauty of the 20's era.

Sharing this now on FB and twitter.
