Review of "Les Misérables" 4/16/19 by Suzanne
Airs Sundays on PBS

Don't expect the musical! This is a regular drama. I enjoyed this miniseries. They did a good job making it seem very realistic. Even though it has 6 parts, it didn't drag. I tried reading the book. Now, THAT drags! It's horribly slow and boring. I wouldn't recommend reading it. Watch this good miniseries instead.

PBS usually does a great job with costume dramas, and this one is no exception. It really does draw you in and make you care about the characters and the drama. Check it out! It's only 8 episodes.

MORE INFORMATION:

Victor Hugo’s masterpiece Les Misérables comes to television in a six-part adaptation by multi award-winning screenwriter Andrew Davies.

Dominic West stars as fugitive Jean Valjean, with David Oyelowo as his pursuer Inspector Javert and Lily Collins as the luckless single mother Fantine. Love, death, and the struggle for social justice in early 19th-century France feature in this beautifully faithful retelling of one of the world’s most beloved stories.

The distinguished British cast also includes Adeel Akhtar (The Night Manager, Murdered By My Father) and Academy Award winner Olivia Colman (The Favourite, Murder On The Orient Express, The Night Manager, Broadchurch) as Monsieur and Madame Thénardier, Ellie Bamber (Nocturnal Animals, Pride And Prejudice And Zombies) as Cosette, Josh O’Connor (The Durrells in Corfu) as Marius, Erin Kellyman (Raised By Wolves) as Éponine and Henry Lloyd Hughes (Indian Summers, The Inbetweeners) as Pontmercy.
