The Artist (15-May-2011)

Director: Michel Hazanavicius

Writer: Michel Hazanavicius

Keywords: Romantic Comedy

George Valentin, a leading star of silent films in 1927, accidentally runs into pedestrian Peppy Martin while posing in shots for his latest film, deciding to react to the incident by playfully showing off with her for the cameras. Martin, who finds herself featured in Variety as a result of the chance encounter, embarks on a career with Valentin's assistance that sees her climbing all the way to the top of the Hollywood food chain just as the death of silent films strikes a critical blow to Valentin's career prospects. Won Academy Awards for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Original Score, and Best Costume Design; nominated for five others, including Best Supporting Actress.
