Les Meserables

Air Date: 12/28/12 No song will sound perfect in this edition of 'Les Miserables' as Hooper, the director, decided to record his actors singing live instead of lip syncing to pre-recorded tunes. And furthermore, Robin discusses his choice to pick actors with faces instead of voices, but overall Hoopers choices are the more cinematic for the screen version of 'Les Miserables.' If you're unfamiliar with the story, Jean Valjean, known as Prisoner 24601, is released from prison and breaks parole to create a new life for himself while evading the grip of the persistent Inspector Javert. Based on the novel by Victor Hugo, 'Les Miserables' travels with Jean Valjean as he runs from the ruthless Inspector Javert on a journey beyond the barricades, at the center of the June Rebellion. Meanwhile, the life of a working class girl with a child is at turning point as she turns to prostitution to pay money to the evil innkeeper and his wife who look after her child, Cosette. Valjean promises to take care of the child, eventually leads to a love triangle between Cosette, Marius who is a student of the rebellion, and Eponine, a girl of the streets. The people sing of their anger and Enjolras leads the students to fight upon the barricades.Listen in for more information on this week's film review with Robin Hollabird.
