The Artist Talk and Screening

Jersey Opera House

Event Overview

5 time Oscar winner (including Best Picture and Best Director) plus best show stealing dog in a movie ever - The Artist was an instant hit with audiences on it's release.  Utterly adorable, this is a crowd pleasing tribute to the magic of silent film. Empire described it as "Simply irresistible. More than a skit, this a lively and lovable comedy that's full of personality and charm."

It is the late 1920s. George Valentin (Dujardin) is a silent-movie legend whose stardom rubs off on a budding starlet named Peppy Miller (Bejo) after a chance encounter at a premiere. At first he finds Peppy's fame-by-association cute, but the arrival of sound turns her into a serious rival.  Enjoy a talk about film music and live performances from Harriet Mackenzie and friends at the pre-screening event Music and Talk.
