This tribute to the magic of silent cinema was made in 2011 and won the hearts of millions.
Hollywood, the late 1920s—the studio boss announces that sound is the future of film. The end of the silent era leaves silent screen idol George Valentin devastated and ruined. All he has left of his once beautiful and glamorous life is a sense of dignity and a smart dog, while Peppy Miller—his fan who worked her way up from being an extra—becomes the studio’s star.
The Artist received universal acclaim upon its release and won five Oscars at the 2012 Academy Awards.
Director Michel Hazanavicius, 114 minutes, France, Belgium, 2011, 12+
