Les Miserables (Blu-ray + UltraViolet)
Victor Hugo's stirring novel of redemption and revolution is brought to life by the artistry of director Bille August and his brilliant cast. Liam Neeson stars as Jean Valjean, a heartless convict who is transformed by a single act of mercy. Uma Thurman is Fantine, the vulnerable prostitute who begs Valjean to raise her only child, Cosette (Claire Danes). And Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush is an ambitious policeman determined to return Valjean to prison. A truly epic film, Les Miserables is "Magnificent! A compelling and powerful human drama with terrific performances by Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush" (Bill Diehl, ABC Radio).
