LES MISÉRABLES

Compelling and Poignant Film Surprises with Undeniable Christian Message

Los Angeles, CA (March 6, 2013) - Critically acclaimed and star-studded, the sweeping and spectacular musical extravaganza Les Misérables arrives on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD on March 22, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. Directed by Academy Award® winner Tom Hooper (The King's Speech), the motion picture adaptation is a stunningly-realized interpretation of Victor Hugo's tale of broken dreams, passion, sacrifice and redemption. A timeless testament to the endurance of the human spirit, Les Misérables features an all-star cast - including Golden Globe® winner Hugh Jackman (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Oscar® winners Russell Crowe (A Beautiful Mind) and Anne Hathaway (The Dark Knight Rises) - along with beloved melodies such as "I Dreamed a Dream," "Bring Him Home," "One Day More" and "On My Own."

Winner of three Academy Awards®, Les Misérables is recognized by fans and critics alike as one of the most heartrending and redeeming films in recent history. Hailed by the New York Post's Kyle Smith as "the best film of the year," Les Misérables represents the kind of counter-cultural gift that faith audiences have longed to receive and elevates profound concepts such as conversion, self-donation and the life-changing power of mercy and forgiveness.

"The film adaptation of Les Misérables is simply outstanding in its portrayal of the power of mercy - both human and divine - to change lives and even societies," commented bestselling author and EWTN series host Rev. C.J. McCloskey.

Les Misérables is a film about truth, devotion, commitment and the transcendent power of faith. The compelling story of redemptive suffering and sacrificial love enables viewers to experience how life would unfold without the constraints of ego, self-interest and bitterness. A dramatic illustration of how human beings can change for the better and how good ends can never justify evil means; Les Misérables is a testament to the power and potential of man's heart. It represents a rare cultural opportunity to educate young adults about the salvific value of human struggle. More than anything it serves as an example of how human beings, no matter the depths to which we may fall, can change for the better. It shows that even when the world is at its darkest, there are courageous, principled people fighting for the light.

For those who look to movies for enlightenment, inspiration and hope in addition to entertainment, Les Misérables represents a cultural breakthrough of epic proportions.


SYNOPSIS
Hugh Jackman, Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway star in this critically acclaimed adaptation of the epic musical phenomenon. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells the story of ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Jackman), hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe), after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. This enthralling story is a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit and "an unforgettable experience" (Richard Roeper, RichardRoeper.com).
