Saw Les Misérables tonight, and it definitely exceeded my expectations. I wouldn’t have thought Russell Crowe and Borat singing would have made for a good movie at all. But it was amazing, definitely worth watching if you enjoy musicals. I had an idea the story was quite tragic, but I did not know the story until I saw this movie. And it is very tragic. I am going to try and read the book though, perhaps while listening to the soundtrack. Who doesn’t love a good tale about redemption? The idea that there is still hope for mankind.
