The Artist

(STAR Movies, Saturday, 9 p.m.)

Winner of Five Oscars, including the Best Picture, this French film is a tribute to the silent film era.

Presented in the style of a black-and-white silent film, the film is written and directed by Michel Hazanavicius and stars Jean Dujardin and Bérénice Bejo.

The story takes place in Hollywood, between 1927 and 1932, and focusses on the relationship of an older silent film star and a rising young actress as silent cinema falls out of fashion and is replaced by the talkies.

Maxie

(MGM Movies, Sunday, 7 p.m.)

In this old-fashioned comedy-fantasy, a roaring 1920s flapper inhabits the body of a hardworking 1980s secretary and starts a partying spree that turns San Francisco on its ear. Glenn Close, Mandy Patinkin and Ruth Gordon are in the cast.

War Games

(MGM Movies, Monday, 9 p.m.)

A young computer whiz kid accidentally connects into a top-secret super-computer, which has complete control over the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

It challenges him to a game between America and Russia, and he innocently starts the countdown to World War 3.

Now the boy has to convince the computer he wanted to play a game not the real thing. Matthew Broderick plays the lead.
