A week ago, I saw the delightful movie Pitch Perfect. I recommend everyone listen to the soundtrack. But that is a topic for another day.
During the previews, we got a sneak peek of the upcoming Les Miserables movie. See the extended “first look” above. Les Mis was originally a French novel that was made into a musical that was made into a movie that is now being made into another movie. This time around it will star Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and Amanda Seyfried.
My mom loved the musical Les Mis. I, regrettably, have never seen it. I did see the first movie in 10th grade English class, but I’m pretty sure I was too busy chatting with friends to pay any attention (sorry Ms. Garbis). However, my mom did make sure I’d heard the soundtrack. And I still use our Les Mis beach towel.
Now that there is a new movie I have a second chance. And when I see it, I will be thinking of my mom.
