Universally adored by critics worldwide and winner of 5 Oscars and 7 BAFTA awards, The Artist is an uplifting and beguiling rags-to-riches tale brimming with fun and charisma. With numerous cinematic references, this dialogue-free film features a dazzling orchestral score by Ludovic Bource and is pure joy for fans of classic Hollywood films.
It’s 1927 and George Valentin is a silent film star at the top of his game; that is until the arrival of sound revolutionises the film industry and threatens his career. Peppy Miller, a talented young film fan, breathes new life into the studios but for George her arrival is both a blessing and a curse as she turns out to be not just a love interest, but also a studio rival.
