Rated PG-13 · 2012

Drama, Musical


The wildly popular musical Les Misérables, first produced in English in 1985, reaches the screen in an extravagant visualization directed by Tom Hooper (The King's Speech). Hooper takes a complex, multigenerational saga of crime, passion and revenge and uses a documentarian's camera to bring the audience straight into the heart of the fugitive Jean Valjean. The songs, recorded live, create piercingly emotional moments (Ann Hathaway's heartbreaking "I Dreamed a Dream" will certainly net her an Oscar nomination). Jackman, too, benefits from this technique; Crowe, less so. Helena Bonham Carter and Sasha Baron Cohen bring welcome comic energy. If you are one of the many fans of the popular Les Miz, you will find the cinematic version exciting and rewarding. Not a fan? You may remain unconvinced.
