Les Miz--synopsis

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption-a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. In December 2012, the world's longest-running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper's sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo's epic tale. -- (C) Universal  158 minutes

 

REVIEWS

Justin Chang, Variety

The squalor and upheaval of early 19th-century France are conveyed with a vividness that would have made Victor Hugo proud, heightened by the raw, hungry intensity of the actors' live oncamera vocals.

 

Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.com

This dramatic musical contains some powerful moments, hovering between politics and art, theater and cinema, but not really successful as a whole.

Tips for improving the restaurant experience:

  • Let us know your dinner plans when you RSVP so that we can either save you a seat at the "Movie Group" table or plan to meet you at the movie.
  • Print out a map or enter the restaurant address in your GPS ahead of time.
  • We can't always split the checks so please bring CASH to pay for your meal.
  • If you don't see us when you walk in, ask to sit with the "Movie Group".

FEE
The $5.00 yearly fee (or $1.50 for one movie) goes toward charges incurred for using the MeetUp website. You can access PayPal (see link in left hand column) or pay your fee to the Organizer at the event.

    I did not go because I saw Les Mis on the storm/snow day. Today, I saw Anna Karenina at Valley View with a friend instead. Sorry I missed you.
