Review: Les Miserables Movie 1998 (Starring Liam Neeson & Geoffrey Rush)
This is so perfect that I have no snarky comment to make about it. I am so excited it makes me feel ill. Geoffrey Rush will play Thenardier in the new Les Mis movie. Bizarrely, both of these pictures are of him. Another illness-level-of-excitement-inducing thing: Geoffrey Rush will play Thenardier and will be terrifyingly perfect for the role. Rush was actually already in the crappily adapted movie the one with Liam Neeson and Uma Thurman as Javert, and he did a fine job as he is a fine actor , but will be more impressive in a borderline caricature role like Thenardier, I think.
Kill Bill: Vol. Sign in. The star of " The Boys " has a great Watchlist that she can't stop re-watching. Watch now. The scene is set during the French Restoration at the beginning of the 19th century. Jean Valjean, a galley slave who was sent to prison for stealing food, is now released after serving
The gold standard is still the stirring version Richard Boleslawski directed for Darryl Zanuck, starring Fredric March as reformed petty thief Jean Valjean and Charles Laughton as Javert, the obsessed police inspector who pursues him relentlessly. And the lavish musical has been packing in audiences on Broadway? Per- haps you? And then Javert recognizes Valjean from prison. And then Valjean cares for the malnourished prostitute Fantine Uma Thurman. And then Javert pursues him.
Les Miserables - Trailer
At Pinewood Studios outside London, he set up a scene in which 30 student revolutionaries and scores of background players construct a blockade to stave off the French army in 19th century Paris. Things were being thrown at you. We never knew exactly where the cameras were, and we built the thing in 10 minutes. Hordes of fans of the stage version — which has played continuously since its debut despite initially terrible reviews — are eagerly anticipating the movie. But other critics have found fault with aspects, including its length 2 hours, 38 minutes and earnestness. Instead of allowing lip-syncing, he had all of the players sing their songs on camera as they listened to a live piano accompaniment via an earpiece.
