In this story of the trials of the peasant Jean Valjean–a man unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert–Hugo achieves the sort of rare imaginative resonance that allows a work of art to transcend its genre.
I have never read this amazing classic (It is on my TBR pile) but i have always wanted to see the musical. I hope with the release in December someone might bring it back!
This movie is filled with an amazing cast and the songs are recorded with live singing!
Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, and so many more. Check out the full cast and the trailer at IMDb here.
