Synopsis

Victor Hugo's 150-year-old tale of a morally scrupulous ex-convict who takes the daughter of a fallen woman as his own is turned into scintillating screen music by The King's Speech director Tom Hooper. Hugh Jackman was born to play Jean Valjean, the former prisoner who breaks parole to live a life of selfless decency while being hunted for decades by ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe). Anne Hathaway contributes a heart-wrenching performance as the waif's mother while ribald laughs are provided by Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter as a thieving landlord and his slatternly wife. A genuinely impressive cinematic celebration of the classic tale of justice and redemption.
