Les Misérables is a 2012 British musical drama film directed by Tom Hooper and produced by Working Title Films. The story is based on Victor Hugo’s historical novel that focuses on Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), about to be released from prison after serving 19 years for stealing a loaf of bread. On his way out of prison, his jailer, Javert (Russell Crowe), warns Valjean that he will be dogging him, just waiting for him to violate his parole so he can send Valjean back to the jail. The new Les Miz showcases the vocal capabilities of stars like Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne, and Samantha Barks.
