6 The Sun, Wednesday, January 2, 2013 At the Movies 'Les Miserables' is a stunning, uplifting marvel By lan Black Special to The Sun In 1985, the musical "Les Misrables" debuted in English for the first time in London. It quickly became a West End sen- sation, before taking Broadway by storm and becoming a major piece of pop culture for the fi- nal part of the 20th century. The idea of a film version of the celebrated musical has been around for years, however only now, the better part of 30 years since the musical's incep- tion, has it finally been done, courtesy of mega-producer Cameron Macintosh and Tom Hooper, the director of Oscar- winner "The King's Speech" For those unfamiliar with Senior Lunch Menus: Jan. 7- 11 Monday: Chicken pastina or beef enchilada bake, mixed veg- etables, country coleslaw, wheat bread, pears. Tuesday: Curry chicken salad or krab and pasta salad on spin- ach Romaine, potato onion soup, bran wheatiroll, pineapple, Wednesday: Zucchini lasagna or lima beans and turkey ham, calico corn, marinated spring garden salad, potato wheat roll, fresh banana. Thursday: Herb chicken patty or breaded baked fish/tartar sauce, whipped potatoes/gravy, green beans and tomatoes, onion bread, chocolate pudding. Friday: Meatloaf half sandwich or turkey pastrami half sandwich on wheat bread, lentil soup, spinach Romaine salad, fresh orange. The Northwest Senior & Disability Services Agency offers noon meals in Sheridan at the United Methodist Church, 234 N. Bridge St. Meals are served at 11:30 eLm. Monday through Friday. Anyone 60 or over and their spouse are welcome for fellowship and a hot, nutriUous meal. Home-delivered meals are available for home-bound seniors. A donation of $3 is suggested for the meals. Advance reserva- tions are required. For more information, call 503-843-2000. the music or the Victor Hugo novel on which it is based, the primary character of "Les Mis6rables" is Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman) a thief impris- oned for stealing a loaf of bread for his starving family. After 19 years of near-enslavement by the unforgiving French justice system, Valjean is paroled. However, his status as a pa- rolee bars him from employ- ment and thus he is reduced to stealing from a church to try and survive. He is caught, but the bishop lies for Valjean, say- ing that he gave the items freely to him. Valjean, over- whelmed by the bishop's mercy, breaks his parole and assumes a new identity, build- ing a new life for himself in which he tries to do good. The story spans the next 16 years and follows the stories of the lives of those around Valjean during that time. Given that the setting is 19th centtLry France, those lives were not so good. For those unfamiliar with the work of Victor Hugo, his writ- ing is not known for being espe- cially cheery. Given that the title of this story, translated, is "The Miserables" or'qhe Miserable," you might take away that this isn't going to be the happiest story you've ever experienced. However, undemeath the grit and grime there is some genu- ine hope there, stories of re- demption and forgiveness, and a distant promise of a better to- morrow. Even though the story is mostly quite sad, it shows that even in the darkest times there are bright, shining lights. The film itself is notable among movie musicals in that the cast sings every bit of it right there on screen. There was no pre-recording a pristine track and then lip-syncing to it, like what has always been done be- fore. This means the actors here are singing while actually per- forming, and this is a very im- portant reason as to why this film is so effective. The songs may not be the most pitch perfect and clear renditions of the iconic music ever, but they are so full of raw emotion that the effect is unbe- lievably powerful. It's also worth noting that pretty much every part of this film is sung. In addition to Hugh Jackman's stellar perfonnance as Valjean, the rest of the cast was incredtoly well chosen. Anne Hathaway plays Fantine, a struggling factory worker, and is absolutely spec- tacular in one of the film's most emotionally gut wrenching seg- ments. The relative unknown Samantha Barks plays Iponine, a peasant girl caugh t on the wrong end of a love triangle. Hers was one of the standout performances of the entire film. Though some say that Russell Crowe, who plays the relentless Inspector Javert, wasn't up to the task musically, I think he played his part well. He may not be the strongest singer, but this film wasn't just about singing ability, but the way he could act while singing. "Les Mis6rables" is what a film adaptation of a musical should be. Bringing the story to the big screen allows for a more personal and emotional experi- ence. Rather than being in cho- reographed musical numbers, the actors act like the people in these situations would act, with the exception that they are sing- ing their lines rather than speak- ing them. This element, com- bined with the live performance of the vocals, is what propels "Les Mis&ables" above such projects as "The Phantom of the Opera" of several years ago. It seems even after all these years, the crowd pleasing ap- peal of "Les Mis6rables" has not waned, as the film enjoyed a surprisingly high box office draw on the Tuesday it opened for the biggest opening for a musical ever. I would highly recommend this experience to just about anyone. The film looks amaz- ing, sounds amazing and use of the music can stir emotions like few other things can.
