Don’t worry if you didn’t make it to the ultra-swanky Cannes Film Festival this year. There’s a decidedly more relaxed way to celebrate the culture and spirit of the French movie event all from the comfort of your own home. Replace a high-wattage red-carpet appearance with a delicious French dinner and flick and voilà – you Cannes’t go wrong!
Watch: The Artist
This black-and-white, silent romantic comedy was the winner of a multitude of awards, including the Best Actor Award at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and five Academy Awards. Set in the late 1920s (between 1927 and 1932) in Old Hollywood, the film chronicles the relationship between a silent-film star and an up-and-coming actress. To date, it’s the most awarded French film in history.
