Les Miserables: a soul-stirring film experience

Raymond Arroyo, New York Times best-selling author and host of EWTN’s “The World Over,” had a chance to preview “Les Misérables.” This incredible movie opens on Christmas Day. Arroyo, who is a member of the Catholic League’s board of directors, offered the following comments on the film:
 
“Tom Hooper’s bold ‘Les Misérables’ is not just a cinematic achievement, but a soul-stirring experience that lingers like the melodies it contains. Hugh Jackman’s Christ-haunted Jean Valjean is a revelation. The redemptive heart of the landmark musical has been amplified and the impact is deeply moving. It is so refreshing to see a film set in a consistent moral universe that connects on so many levels. Seeing ‘Les Mis’ you will ‘hear the people sing’ in the cineplex—and no doubt, on their way home as well.”
 
“Every bishop, priest, pastor and cleric should be begging their people to go see this movie. It really is about the redemptive nature of man’s redemptive quest. It’s about the Cross and embracing it and putting yourself aside for the sake of others.”
