‘Les Miserables’ among cinema’s best in 2012

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

From this point on we cannot help except get caught up in the emotion of Valjean’s life as he walks the line of being discovered for his past, but does great things like help make up for a wrong to a woman he knew named Fantine (Anne Hathaway) by rescuing from filth her child Cosette (Isabelle Allen, Amanda Seyfried). Even though we see many years pass before it is over, those used to these types of epics will not be disappointed from the terrible suffering overcome to song sung so well they cannot help but reach one’s own soul.

This film deserves every nomination and award it receives, and a shame Hathaway and Jackman can’t also share potential Oscar gold of carrying the story with others like Sacha Baron Cohen  who has audiences rolling in laugher from his brilliant portrayal of a slimy innkeeper named Thénardier. I will not only watch it again upon my next opportunity, but own it and recommend it as one to see as soon as possible. As a result, I’m more than glad to bestow “Les Miserables” with five out of five revolutions.
