Les Misérables at the Magnolia
Les Misérables is the sweeping and spectacular motion-picture adaptation of Victor Hugo's epic tale, the beloved global stage sensation seen by more than 60 million people in 42 countries. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, the film tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) is hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Russell Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Anne Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette (Amanda Seyfried), their lives change forever. The world's longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen with international superstars and beloved songs—including "I Dreamed a Dream," "Bring Him Home," "One Day More," and "On My Own." Directed by Tom Hooper (The King's Speech), Les Misérables also stars Eddie Redmayne, Aaron Tveit, Samantha Barks, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.
