I've seen the Broadway play and the movie of Les Mis. It's rare when I like a movie better than a play. I wasn't all that crazy about the play but LOVED this movie. It's fantastic, if you have not seen it yet-it's a MUST see.
Not sure if this movie is popular in the UK, but Lincoln is also a must see movie, it's fantastic. I am basically a chick flick person and do not like war movies or a lot of blood and gore. This movie is an exception, well so is Les Mis. I have my fingers crosed that Daniel-Day Lewis will win the Oscar for best actor in Lincoln this Sunday. My second pick would be Hugh Jackman for Les Mis.
