It's Showtime at Your Library:
Join us on Wednesday, July 10 for a film screening of The Artist (PG-13). The film won five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. This film tells the story of Hollywood’s transition from silent films to talkies and the impact to the stars of that era. The program will be from 2:00-4:00 p.m. in The Learning Center (TLC).
In late 1920s Hollywood, George Valentin (Academy Award Winner Jean Dujardin) is a silent movie superstar. The advent of the talkies may sound the death knell for his career and see him fall into oblivion. For young extra Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo), it seems the sky's the limit and perhaps major movie stardom awaits. The Artist tells the story of their interlinked destinies.
