Synopsis

A visually enthralling homage to the early years of cinema, “Artist” is a black and white silent film set in Hollywood in the late 1920s. In an ambitious and beautifully executed celebration of the silver screen we follow the last great silent film star, George Valentin and his relationship with a beautiful extra whose star is on the rise in the talkie circuit.
