There’s a new set pic from the currently filming Les Miserables, which you can see below. It’s Hugh Jackman in costume as Jean Valjean. If I had to pick one word to describe the shot, it would be “stinky”. Doesn’t he just look raggedy and dirty? I guess times were tough in 19th century France, especially for ex-cons.
“Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.”
