FILMCLUB: Les Miserables
Recently our friends at FILMCLUB went to check out the brand new Les Miserables film which is coming out tomorrow (11th January 2013).
Les Miserables is an adaptation of a stage musical, which is originally based on a moving novel by French writer Victor Hugo (also the author of The Hunchback of Notre-Dame).
Revolution is in the air and a series of acts of kindness leads to a difficult situation for reformed thief Jean Valjean. Along with Cosette – a young girl he has rescued from a life of neglect – they are drawn into a murky world of lies, blackmail and action.
The drama is supported by an amazing soundtrack of show tunes that will stick in your head for hours!

Our young film expert, Caroline, went to see the film and this is what she thought:
Caroline also said “I most enjoyed interviewing Eddie Redmayne because he’s one of my favourite actors, and I also really enjoyed interviewing Tom Hooper because he’s such a world renowned director and I didn’t think I’d get the opportunity to interview him. It’s been a really exciting experience.”
