Les Mis - The Movie: Intensely Powerful

Today was cold and rainy and Jeff and I thought it would be a perfect day to see a movie.  We wanted to see Les Mis on Christmas but it was sold out everywhere.  So we headed to the theater this afternoon instead.  A perfect movie for a wintery afternoon.

We are fans of Les Miserables.  We have read the book, seen the play, and now watched the movie.
Hugh Jackman was the perfect Jean Valjean and Anne Hathaway was riveting as Fantine.  Russell Crow couldn't sing as well as the rest, but he was a relentless Javert.  Oh, and the love story between Cosette and Marius was truly romantic.   

Go see it and bring tissues to dry your tears..

Intensely powerful.
