AFI THE ARTIST is the singing, dancing sensation of 2011! Writer-director Michel Hazanavicius' love... More

AFI THE ARTIST is the singing, dancing sensation of 2011! Writer-director Michel Hazanavicius' love letter to Hollywood's silent era is filmmaking both bold and bravura in our digital age, with spirits perfectly embodied by leading man Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo's fetching starlet. In the film's final frames, new generations will discover that old time glamour and the earliest tools of an American art form possess the power to leave an audience speechless.
