Les Misérables

Fight. Dream. Hope. Love.


Les Misérables
The world's longest-running musical finally gets the big-screen treatment. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, it folows an ex-prisoner, jailed for stealing a loaf of bread, and then breaking his parole, hunted for decades by a ruthless policeman. When the ex-con, now mayor of a small town, agrees to care for a factory worker's young daughter, their lives change forever.

Mark Keizer quote iconHooper has charged himself with creating a film version of the stage musical so grand and definitive that all other iterations of the material can only withdraw into the shadows from embarrassment.
