I dreamed a dream…No wait, wrong song. Er, Let’s do the time warp again! Dammit, wrong musical again! Honestly, I’ve pretty much forgotten every single tune from the Les Miserables catalogue after erasing that info and dumping Baysplosions in there instead, but I still know that the film is about love, life, revenge and dirty French Peasants. Also, Wolverine sings, which justifies the ticket price for me. Time to do some catching up with the latest behind the scenes featurette then.
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, “Les Misérables” 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 after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
Les Miserables is out on Christmas Day, and stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen. Tom “Kings Speech” Hooper directs.
