“Les Miserables”

Nominated For: Best Picture, Best Actor (Hugh Jackman), Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway), Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Original Song, Best Production Design, Best Sound Mixing

What’s It About? Set against revolutionary-torn 19th-century France, “Les Mis” follows an ex-prisoner Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) who attempts to start a new, virtuous life. He changes his name, and adopts a young girl, Cosette, (who grows up to be Amanda Seyfried) but finds himself hunted by one man, Javert (Russell Crowe), for decades.

Why You Should See It: Tom Hooper (“The King’s Speech”) takes on the Victor Hugo classic to bring the most authoritative — and moving — on-screen adaptation to date. Anne Hathaway’s turn as Fontine has been lighting up the awards circuits; she has received both a Golden Globe and a SAG award for her role. Everyone’s money is on Hathaway to win the gold at the Oscars, too. Seeing “Les Mis” for her alone wouldn’t be unwarranted, but the actress is in good company with stellar performances from Jackman, Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen and Eddie Redmayne. It’s a full-fledge broadway spectacle playing out before your eyes.

It’s Kind of Like: “Les Mis” on Broadway. But with really good seats and A-list stars.

How You Should See It: “Les Miserables” is still playing in theaters. You can check out showtimes here.
