About the Movie
Hugh Jackman, Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway star in this critically-acclaimed adaptation of the epic musical phenomenon. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Jackman), 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. This enthralling story is a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit and “an unforgettable experience” (Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: By the grand finale, when tout le monde is waving the French tricolor in victory, you may instead be raising the white flag in exhausted defeat.
Fresh: If you like your musicals enormous, over the top and bang-on-the-head manipulative, "Les Miserables" is the movie for you.
Fresh: Nearly every song is shot in extreme close-up. I would have preferred to get lost in the music, rather than wonder "How did they get Jackman's eyes to look like that?" "When was the last time Redmayne shaved?" "When was the last time Hathaway ate?"
Fresh: Ultimately the film's choppy, camera-goes-anywhere approach works well in translating a play that was never all that interested in the movement of bodies anyway-only their martyrdom.
WHAT A WONDERFUL MASTERPIECE!!! 😃
This movie shows a lot of emotion throughout, and the songs (including a couple songs never before heard in the stage versions) are awesome.
Anne Hathaway showed her strong feeling when she sang "I Dreamed A Dream." I cried mildly when she sang the first few lines of the song, and yes she has a beautiful voice indeed. 🎵🎵🎵 😢
Oh, and everyone in the production had great gifted talents. They sang, they acted, and they showed their emotions throughout the entire film.
'Les Misérables' is KING!!
I COULD HEAR THE PEOPLE SING!! 😃🎵🎵
By the way, will there be a 720p HD version of "Les Misérables" on iTunes? I only asked because only the 480p SD version can be 'Pre-ordered' at this time. I don't see the 'HD' icon anywhere, but hey I'm looking forward to getting this movie.
This was a great movie and the actor's voices are phenomenal !!!!
Absolutely, without a doubt the best thing I have ever witnessed! I love musicals and music is such a huge part if my life. I feel like a new person now that I've seen this masterpiece! It is definitely a must see and will forever be my favorite movie. BRAVO!!!!!!!!
