The 2012 Film adaptation of Les Miserables is starring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried and Helena Bonam Carter among others! It’s an adaptation of the successful stage musical based on Victor Hugo’s classic novel set in 19th-century France, in which a paroled prisoner named Jean Valjean seeks redemption.
Prisoner 24601, Jean Valjean, is released from prison and breaks parole to create a new life for himself while evading the grip of the persistent Inspector Javert. Set in early 19th-century France, the story reaches resolution against the background of the July Revolution of 1832.
The famous musical has won countless Tony awards, and may get some Oscar buzz. You might recognize the title track, “Dream A Dream” from Susan Boyle’s auditon song on the X-Factor. This film looks amazing. Will you be watching?
