Les Miserables has been one of my most-anticipated films of the year, and I’m happy to report that it’s very good. If you’re not familiar with the stage version, I’m not sure how you’ll react, but fans will be almost certainly be taken by what director Tom Hooper has accomplished with his screen adaptation. It’s a big, bold musical at its finest, and I’m not ashamed to admit that I got choked up at various moments throughout the picture.

And here’s the official synopsis for Les Miserables:
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Miserables 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.
