Universal Pictures Ireland have sent over an extended featurette for their forthcoming musical drama, Tom Hooper adaptation of the classic stage-musical Les Misérables. It looks exquisite.
Director: Tom Hooper
Writers: William Nicholson
Stars: Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption–a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
