A love letter to 1920s Hollywood that resurrects silent cinema as a powerful and complex storytelling medium, The Artist was shot entirely in black and white, without dialogue and utilizing a traditional 1.33 aspect ratio.
The tale is a familiar one, of two Hollywood stars on opposite trajectories. George Valentin (Jean Dujardin) is a silent screen idol who is about to lose it all. Meanwhile, aspiring actress Peppy Miller (Berenice Bejo) unexpectedly finds herself the new It-Girl at the forefront of the sound phenomenon.
We predict this Oscar fave is going to sell out, so be sure to book your tickets in advance and/or arrive early.
