A few days ago I was at the screening for this film. It is so good. Excellent I might add. It's a full of emotion, pain, suffering, love, death, and romance and humbling. The audience cheered and cried during the showing. I don't think anyone moved from their seat the entire time. No popcorn or bathroom runs. It was captivating beyond words.
It opens Christmas Day in theaters. Make a date this week to see it! Honestly, I was invited to see this movie for the review and I'd pay to see it again. It's that incredibly awesome.
The cast is so talented, the singing is wonderful, and the settings are so real like. It's truly an experience as stated in the synopsis below.
Les Misérables is the motion-picture adaptation of the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries and in 21 languages around the globe and still breaking box-office records everywhere in its 27th year. Helmed by The King’s Speech’s Academy Award®-winning director, Tom Hooper, the Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh production stars Hugh Jackman, Oscar® winner Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit and Samantha Barks. 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 (Crowe) after he breaks parole.

In December 2012, the world’s longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale. With international superstars and beloved songs—including “I Dreamed a Dream,” “Bring Him Home,” “One Day More” and “On My Own”—Les Misérables, the show of shows, is now reborn as the cinematic musical experience of a lifetime
