The stage musical version of Victor Hugo’s great novel is the longest-running musical of all time. It has been seen by more than 60 million people in all sorts of languages and countries. In the hands of director Tom Hooper, who guided The King’s Speech with subtlety and grace, this screen adaptation is garish, shrill, and breathtakingly over the top. The songs are still there, up close and personal like you’ve never seen or heard them. The cast (headed by Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe) performs bravely, if not always wisely or too well. Nominated for Academy Awards in eight categories, including Best Picture. Rated PG-13. 158 minutes.
