“Movie: The Artist”
This best-picture Oscar winner is an affectionate tribute to movie history, with director Michel Hazanavicius going so far as to make it a silent film. Jean Dujardin also earned a statuette as an actor who fears what the dawn of talking pictures may mean for his career — and who falls for a chorus girl (Berenice Bejo) whose star is rising. John Goodman also stars.
