‘Les Misérables’ (Dec. 25)

After winning the Best Director Oscar—along with Best Picture—for "The King’s Speech", filmmaker Tom Hooper decided to follow that triumph up by adapting one of the greatest musicals of all time, "Les Misérables". The film tells the epic story of Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), a man sentenced to 19 years in prison for stealing a loaf of bread. He flees parole and remakes himself, but is doggedly pursued by his former prison supervisor, Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe)—all while raising Cosette (Amanda Seyfried), the bastard child of Fantine (Anne Hathaway), a fallen woman. Hooper’s decision to have his game cast sing all the songs live pays off. The musical numbers soar and the performances are stellar across the board in what has emerged as one of the front-runners for the Best Picture Oscar.
