G-S-T Review…Les Misérables

There’s little use in trying to disguise my frustration with Tom Hooper’s sluggish interpretation of Les Misérables, though in the interest of full disclosure I should acknowledge immediately that I have never seen the musical on which it is based.

Ohhh, Look…Extended First Look At Les Misérables
