Les Misérables in 60 seconds: my “Reel Faith” review (plus product notes).
Les Misérables is now available on home video in a two-disc edition that includes Blu-ray and DVD as well as digital copy and UltraViolet access.
Extensive bonus features include a commentary track by director Tom Hooper, a feature-length making-of documentary (over an hour), a brief featurette on Victor Hugo and the novel’s themes, and extras on casting, scouting locations, live singing, and more.
