Have You Seen "Les Mis" Yet?
Posted by Teresa
We saw the new Les Misérables on Christmas Day with my family, have you seen it yet? It's definitely a LONG movie so prepare yourself, but some of the singing is fantastic and the message is as inspiring as always. I also thought Hugh Jackman was an incredible Val Jean!
Since I saw the movie I've run across a couple of interesting links around the web with different perspectives or interpretations of the movie/story. If you're nerdy like me and interested here they are!
Putting Les Mis in historical context - the story is not about the French Revolution.
Loving the movie despite it's miserable gender stereotypes.
Amazing photo shoot by Annie Leibovitz of cast in character for Vogue.
And a couple of wacky ones: a college parody and parenting lessons from Les Mis.
