Tim Keller commented on recently viewing the movie version of Les Miserables with his wife, Kathy. It's short and to the point, and I'm only giving you a snippet...
I could make this review, very, very short: It’s been a long time since Kathy and I left a theater with tears running down our cheeks.
I for one am glad that millions of viewers will be exposed to the themes of redemption, self-righteousness, and self-sacrifice. Critics uncomfortable with the unabashed sincerity with which those themes are treated have mocked the film as “risible.” The rest of us can weep tears of joy.
In the short "review" there's more good stuff. Go read it.
So looking forward to Christmas and the release of Les Miserables with Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Samantha Barks, Eddie Redmayne, Sasha Baron Cohen, Amanda Seyfried & others. Looks amazing.
