We’re a bit slow on this, but felt it was worth flagging anyway. Due to be released in the UK on the 11th January 2013; the film version of the incredible story Les Miserables looks incredibly exciting. If you have had the opportunity to see the musical, then the captivating story by French author Victor Hugo will undoubtedly catch your eye as the film directed by Tom Hooper (The King’s Speech) looks to be set as a must see in 2013.
An all star cast with Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Russell Crowe (Javert), Anne Hathaway (Fantine) and Helena Bonham Carter (Madame Thernardier) set the scene against the background of the July Revolution in early 19th Century France.
Anne Hathaway’s incredible voice cuts to the core, with such emotion as she sings the classic ‘Dreamed a Dream’, as shown in the trailer. Perhaps this is set to be her best performance yet. We can only wait and see.
If you haven’t already seen the trailer, then look no further:
