Not one to rest on his laurels after the phenomenal success of The King’s Speech, director Tom Hooper takes on this ambitious film adaptation of the much-loved musical.
Based on Victor Hugo's classic novel and the subsequent stage versions, this is an epic and uplifting story about the survival of the human spirit set against the backdrop of 19th-century France. The magnificent score includes the classic songs 'I Dreamed a Dream', 'On My Own', 'Stars,' 'Bring Him Home', 'Do You Hear the People Sing?', and many more.
Assembling an impressive cast, including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Amanda Seyfried, Hooper’s Les Misérables will be a film for a generation.
