Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 12/20/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "What helps make LES MISERABLES so vibrant and thrilling onscreen is Hooper's daring decision to have his actors sing live....LES MISERABLES overflows with humor, heartbreak, rousing action and ravishing romance."
Box Office - 12/06/2012
3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] reverent Hooper plays everything to the rafters, a strategy that admittedly yields great rewards."
Movieline - 12/10/2012
"[M]uch of the rest of the cast is terrific...[particularly] Jackman and Anne Hathaway, who settle into their roles like they've spent their lives waiting for this opportunity."
Los Angeles Times - 12/24/2012
"[T]his production is visual to the max, with an epic physical scale and grandeur the play couldn't possibly have."

"[Barks] brings across her character handsomely and with just the right air of sweet, sad, resigned longing."
Total Film - 12/06/2012
"Hooper opts for a gritty, authentic approach -- at once intimate and epic -- that generally eschews theatrical flourishes....His leads respond in kind with unabashedly emotional, tear-sodden turns..."
USA Today - 12/26/2012
"LES MISERABLES is sweeping, as would be expected given the scope of the hugely popular stage musical from which it is adapted. But it's also wonderfully intimate, thanks to Tom Hooper's deft direction."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2013
"[Hathaway] is able to deliver 'I Dreamed a Dream,' the despairing solo of fallen grisette Fantine, with a raw dramatic intensity rarely seen in musicals..."
