Delve into the history behind Les Miserables; one of the greatest novels of the nineteenth century, one of the greatest musical stage plays of the twentieth and twenty-first century, and now one of the greatest box office successes of the twenty-first century as well.

Featuring interviews with Cameron Mackintosh (Producer), Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Tom Hooper (Director), Nick Jonas (Gavroche in 2003 & Marius Pontmercy in 2010 London West End), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Isabelle Allen (Young Cosette) and more!

From the producers of “Margaret Thatcher: The Iron Lady” and “The Majestic Life of Queen Elizabeth II”, this is an exploration of history, literature, theater and screen, and how a powerful story that is anything by lighthearted has grabbed the attention and adoration of tens-of-millions.

“From Victor Hugo’s classic French novel of the nineteenth century to Tom Hooper’s award winning blockbuster, Les Misérables has undergone one of the most successful transitions from book to stage to screen.” – New York Times

“…this insightful documentary traces the events of the Paris insurrection in 1832 and features excerptsles-mis-pic-1 from the restored 1978 Les Misérables lm starring Anthony Perkins” – Letterboxed
