About the Movie
Based on the novel by Victor Hugo. Les Miserables is the epic story of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict who was persecuted for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. While imprisoned Valjean meets his future nemesis -- the fanatical Inspector Javert. After serving his time, Valjean attempts to forge a new life as a good citizan -- but the obsessive Javert can't let him go, and persues Valjean throughout the years to come.
I love Les Miserables but....
When I first saw that itunes had added this movie, I was very excited because I adore Les Miserables. However, this adaptation completely ignored the facts that Victor Hugo set down in his novel. If you want a good adaptation of Les Miserables, try the one with Liam Neeson. It's not perfect, but it is closer to the book than this is.
Amazing story! we are actually preforming this musical currently and the music is just fantastic! I was actually really excited when I saw iTunes had this movie, since I was not able to find my own. Anyways, its a fantastic movie any broadway fanatic would love!
Really good movie but...
the book is way better, I would recommend reading the book (you can download the audiobook from itunes, i think) first before watching this movie
