The Artist

Cert. PG

THE five-time Oscar winning silent film, The Artist, is a modern classic that belongs in the DVD collection of any self-respecting film lover.

Set in Hollywood as the silent movie era is coming to an end and the ‘talkies’ begin to take over, world-famous silent film star, George Valentin (Best actor Oscar winner Jean Dujardin) finds himself shunned from the business as his on-screen partner, newcomer Peppy Miller (Bérénice Bejo) sees her star rise when she embraces the new-fangled style.

Beautifully shot in black and white, with an original soundtrack that is almost a character in itself, The Artist re-sets the bar for modern film-making.
