The Artist by Michel Hazanavicius (France, 2011, 100 min.)

With English subtitles.

The Artist is not just a tribute to Hollywood’s silent movies era, it is a black and white silent picture.


Academy award winner French actor Jean Dujardin is simply marvelous as George Valentin, the dashing star of countless silent-movie epics. While George resists the efforts of studio to try talkies, Peppy Miller, a bit player, hits it big in the sound era. 


It will take her sparkling personality and the amazing little Uggie (the most talented Jack Russel Terrier you’ll ever see on screen) to save George from downfall.


“The Artist encapsulates everything we go to movies for: action, laughs, tears and a chance to get lost in another world. It just might leave you speechless.” - Rolling Stone
