Heavily hyped and surrounded by deafening buzz, Les Misérables serves as Tom Hooper’s follow up to the Oscar-winning drama The King’s Speech and as this year’s sole mainstream musical. It is considered a heavyweight in the Best Picture category… but it doesn’t deserve it. Well done, beautifully acted and at times explosive, Les Misérables left me wanting more. Not more of the movie, but a more emotional connection.
