Les Misérables - Go See It

Having never seen the musical onstage, I can only compare the new movie version to the book and was surprised at how true it was to Hugo's masterpiece (with the exception of the Thénardiers as comic relief, which works perfectly in this form, however). Unlike another excellent movie musical, Evita, which was unfairly and seemingly maliciously overlooked at the Oscars, Les Misérables is sure to win many nominations and many awards. Although, apparently the critics hate it too - all the more reason to go.

Les Misérables and Lincoln - two great movies in one year. That hasn't happened since....answers in the comment box please.

I agree about A Place in the Sun - didn't see the other one. I do like Ma and Pa Kettle, though.

 My family (husband, 22 year old son, 14 year old second daughter, 11 year old second son; elder daughter, who is the music buff of the family, didn't go as she was going with a friend later on) went to see Les Miserables.  during the movie they all broke down and cried, so I was told.  My husband was rather surprised, as he never cries in movies.

My husband cried too. We both sat stunned at the end, unable to get up, drying our tears. It was wonderful.
