Les Miserables

No other movie reviews could best express how effective and moving the latest big-screen adaptation of "Les Misérables" than this candid family video.

After watching the musical film, the family left a New York cinema sobbing loudly inside their car.

"Wasn't it better than the play, George? It was better than the play," the crying mother told her husband.

When asked about the saddest part of the film, the mom said that she was deeply stirred at the end when Jean Valjean was dying.

"I was walking and I was crying," the father in the driver seat confessed. He added that he cried more over the movie than the funerals that he had been to.

"I'm so upset. I don't want to talk about this," the mom bawled. Their sons, Ryan and Kevin Ferguson, laughed and continued to videotape them on the way home.

The latest movie adaptation of "Les Misérables" is packed with star-studded cast, among them Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway and Amanda Seyfried. The Tom Hooper movie touches on the economic upheaval and social unrest during the 19th century France.
