Overview

Academy-award winning director Tom Hooper's adaptation of the beloved musical LES MISERABLES makes no major changes to the original's plot. The story follows former prisoner Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), who, after being released from the watchful eye of police officer Javert (Russell Crowe), is unable to find work because of his status as an ex-convict. He eventually steals from a local church, but when apprehended, the priest claims that Valjean was given the valuables. This triggers a change in Valjean, and he constructs a new identity for himself as a pillar of society and a local businessman. Years later, he adopts a young girl named Cosette, whose mother Fantine (Anne Hathaway), a former employee of his, became a prostitute and died a horrible death in the gutters after being fired. As the years progress and the French Revolution begins to foment, a grown Cosette (Amanda Seyfried) falls for a passionate revolutionary named Marius (Eddie Redmayne), while Javert begins to close in again on Valjean's secret past.

Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "What helps make LES MISERABLES so vibrant and thrilling onscreen is Hooper's daring decision to have his actors sing live....LES MISERABLES overflows with humor, heartbreak, rousing action and ravishing romance." - 12/20/2012 Rolling Stone


3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] reverent Hooper plays everything to the rafters, a strategy that admittedly yields great rewards." - 12/06/2012 Box Office


"[M]uch of the rest of the cast is terrific...[particularly] Jackman and Anne Hathaway, who settle into their roles like they've spent their lives waiting for this opportunity." - 12/10/2012 Movieline


"[T]his production is visual to the max, with an epic physical scale and grandeur the play couldn't possibly have." - 12/24/2012 Los Angeles Times


"It's big, and also intimate, but best of all it's an affecting adaptation of a show that has touched hearts all over the world for a quarter-century." - 12/27/2012 Wall Street Journal


"[Ms. Hathaway] holds you rapt with raw, trembling emotion." - 12/25/2012 New York Times


"[Barks] brings across her character handsomely and with just the right air of sweet, sad, resigned longing." - 12/24/2012 A.V. Club


"Hooper opts for a gritty, authentic approach -- at once intimate and epic -- that generally eschews theatrical flourishes....His leads respond in kind with unabashedly emotional, tear-sodden turns..." - 12/06/2012 Total Film


"LES MISERABLES is sweeping, as would be expected given the scope of the hugely popular stage musical from which it is adapted. But it's also wonderfully intimate, thanks to Tom Hooper's deft direction." - 12/26/2012 USA Today


"[Hathaway] is able to deliver 'I Dreamed a Dream,' the despairing solo of fallen grisette Fantine, with a raw dramatic intensity rarely seen in musicals..." - 02/01/2013 Sight and Sound
