I recently saw 'The Artist' which if those of you who have been living on a different planet, is the first silent film to have done so well since Schindlers List, having won five Academy Awards, seven BAFTAS, three Golden Globes, i could go on!!!
The film is based around Hollywood in the 1920s and 30s and follows a silent movie actor who struggles to cope with the rise of 'talkies', movies with speech.
Honestly, I was abit weary at first thinking that I would get restless and the film would get slightly monotone but I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. The story is so heart warming and one of the things that really caught my eye was the way the actors were styled (being a fashion student!).
I researched it and the costume designer was Mark Bridges who is also known for working on films such as Blow and The Fighter.
