The film replicates the magic of silent movies in the story of George Valentin, a leading man who can’t make the transition to sound film, and his magical dog. Fortunately dancer Peppy Miller, bent on making it in the movies, brings spark to Valentin’s life. The 100-minute film is rated PG-13 and received the 2011 Oscar for Best Picture.
