One of the most charming and inventive films of recent years, The Artist is a loving homage to the Golden Age of Hollywood that instantly won the hearts of moviegoers around the world... along with five Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Original Score.
Filled with music, romance, laughter and tears, The Artist was the feel-good hit of 2011, and the orchestra truly is the star of this special production as composer Ludovic Bource's dazzling, jazz-infused score accompanies every scene of this magical film.
Set in the 1920’s and shot in black-and-white, The Artist tells the story of the dashing silent movie star George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) after a chance encounter with the young dancer and aspiring actress Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo). George rejects so-called “talking pictures” as a passing fad, but the new medium is tailor-made for Peppy, transforming her into a worldwide sensation. As their fortunes dramatically reverse, George and Peppy must come to terms not only with their love for each other, but with their rapidly changing world.
So put on your top hat… tie up your white tie… brush off your tails… and be transported back to the Hollywood of old, where even a plucky Jack Russell terrier named Uggie could become a star.
Lights… camera… action… The Artist!
