les_miserablesWell, nothing says “holidays” quite like poverty, pestilence, civil war and oppression than the songs that celebrate them. Opening in theaters on Christmas day, LES MISERABLES is the big screen adaptation of the hugely successful stage musical based on VICTOR HUGO’S 1862 novel. Directed for the screen by TOM HOOPER, the cast includes HUGH JACKMAN, RUSSELL CROWE, ANNE HATHAWAY, EDDIE REDMAYNE, AMANDA SEYFRIED, SACHA BARON COHEN and HELENA BONHAM-CARTER. Despite what would seem to be the melancholy nature of the story, it is ultimately one of hope and survival, two virtues that have a place in today’s world. At a press conference to promote the film, director TOM HOOPER explained that now is the perfect time to release LES MIZ. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
