Les Miz - the movie
The trailer for Les Miserables has been released. It will be interesting to see how they convey the musical for the screen. I will likely go see the film but am definitely from Missouri as far as the adaptation is concerned. It really should be seen in a live theater. Russel Crow as Javert, a more complex figure than Valjean in many respects. It will be most interesting to see how he plays him particularly in his final scene. The film is already being hyped and I await the early reviews. I think that they should have let well enough, by far, alone. But, that said, I will see it when it is released in December. It along with Wicked are tied for first as far as musicals and stories. Although for pure emotional and spiritual evocation, Les Mis is clearly the top.
