Les Miserables


Les Miserables is Tom Hopper’s interpretation of the Broadway Musical and adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel Les Miserables.  This one stars Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, and Eddie Redmayne, with hilarious cameos by Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as the Inn Keepers.  This is remarkable for a bunch of reasons, but it’s the first movie musical shot with real time singing as opposed to doing the music ahead of time and having the actors lip sync, which really shows in the emotion that’s generated by the actors; you really feel like you’re there!  I’ve always loved Les Miz, the songs are wonderful, and this really is a five star production.  It’s exciting, it’s interesting, it’s moving, it’s thrilling, and everyone does such a fantastic job.  Five stars.
