Adapting the musical phenomenon for the scope and scale of theatrical cinema, director Tom Hooper’s LES MISÉRABLES (2012) was honored in the year of its release with an AFI AWARD in 2012, recognizing it as one of the most outstanding achievements in the art of the moving image. According to the official rationale, “LES MISÉRABLES dreams a dream of epic ambition and fully realizes its place in the grand and glorious tradition of great American film musicals. Director Tom Hooper invites audiences to soar above the boards as he enlists a stellar creative ensemble to carry the flag of Victor Hugo’s timeless tale into a new generation. Inhabiting the sweeping grandeur that only cinema allows, profoundly intimate performances from Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway and Russell Crowe embody the spirit of revolution and imbue LES MISÉRABLES with its beating heart.”
