On top of my "movies to see" list this month is Les Misérables, a motion picture adaptation of one of my favorite books and musicals. Les Misérables features Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, with Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. With such a talented cast and timeless storyline, it's definitely a must-see.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
If you're as excited as we are for the movie, you only have a few days left to wait. Les Misérables is in theaters on December 25, 2013! In the meantime, check out the official website, Facebook, and Twitter.
