Last Friday I attended a showing of Les Miserables. I am still reeling from the impact.
I am familiar with the music and over the years have seen many snippets of the show, but never the whole thing, so other than a vague knowledge of the story, there was a lot left to discover.
The film was breathtaking.
I am now telling everyone I know to go and see it.
But I should issue you with a warning. take your tissues. They are essential. At the end, the whole audience sat in stunned silence apart from the muffled sniffling. I did not see anyone who looked unaffected All the way back to the car we could hear other people discussing it in very favourable terms.
I want to go again!
