DVD Review: Les Misérables
Starring: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway
With three Academy Awards and countless other accolades, Les Misérables will go down in history as one of the best musicals ever produced. The movie version of Victor Hugo’s classic book as well as the smash stage show tells the story about Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) who was imprisoned for 20 years for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving niece. When he’s released he flees parole and turns his life around. Anne Hathaway delivers one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. A masterpiece even if you’re not into musicals.
