One of the best stories ever writtenVictor Hugo was an absolutely brilliant poet, and some may argue, an even better writer. One of the best stories ever written by the man, Les Misérables, is so good it’s held the baffling title of ‘the world’s longest running musical’ (followed directly by Phantom of the Opera) that holds over 96 international awards. Wowza.
So how does one take a tale so epic in written format and on the stage and transform it into movie magic? Easy. Get British director Tom Hooper of The King’s Speech fame and some star-studded actors to play your key characters, and boom, eight Oscar nominations, nine Bafta nominations, and a Golden Globe for Best Picture, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress are yours. Trust us, after seeing it, you’ll be singing the slave song ‘Look Down’ for days.
