Overview

Victor Hugo's 19th century French historical novel Les Misérables found its way to the stage in 1980 as a remarkably successful musical, and finally the big screen in 1996 sans all of the singing, but it wasn't until 2012 that the two mediums would finally meet. Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper, in his wisdom (depending on which side of the "should stage actors be replaced by more bankable, less vocally adept film actors when Broadway makes the jump to Hollywood), decided to have his actors sing live (stage veteran Hugh Jackman and newcomer Samantha Barks steal the show). Fans of the film should take heed of the small print that adorns the collection's jacket (highlights from the motion picture soundtrack) as, at 60 minutes, it leaves out well over an hour of music. [A Deluxe Version was also released.]
