If you've dreamed a dream of owning the screen version of the legendary stage musical based on Victor Hugo's classic, the time has come. Anne Hathaway has earned numerous awards including an Oscar as the tragic Fantine, whose effect on Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) is profound as he tries to evade perpetually vengeful Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe).
Much of the film's impact comes from director Tom Hooper's ("The King's Speech") decision to have the actors sing live to film. Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Samantha Barks (who also had the role of Eponine on the London stage) are featured as well. DVD extras: three "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Hooper. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
