Les Miserables was absolutely amazing!!!! I highly recommend it for everyone to see. It may be an old show, but it is versatile to all generations. However it is PG13 and there were some scenes of lots of blood puddles all over the place. My almost 12 year old cousin David didn’t really understand the movie very well, and was bored in parts, so if you are under the age of 13 or you want to bring someone who is, be aware that they might not understand it. For those of us who have seen the broadway play, like myself, know how amazing this story is. It is a love story and a timeless one at best.
I cried for at least 1/3 of the entire movie and the house was packed. It was a different feeling seeing it on the big screen as opposed to on broadway. Not that the broadway show isn’t worth seeing, because it really is, but it was a different experience. What I have learned about seeing shows on broadway be redone to be watched on the big screen is that you really see the expression on the faces of the characters. No matter how big your binoculars are, you will only pay attention to the singer and not the entire set and cast behind them. You really can feel the emotion in the characters in this film.
You will most certainly fall in love with the characters, the set design, the costumes, the music, and most of all the story of love that is timeless to all.
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday and I also hope you all take the venture to go see Les Miserables in theaters. You will love it as much as I have.
Thank you! Oh, and happy blogging!
