LES MISERABLES

 

There is a musical in everybody's life that defines them, one which gives them goosebumps now matter how many times you've witnessed it. It brings out an emotion in you through song, through words, through acting - and more importantly, you embrace and learn from these beloved characters each and every time. For me, Les Miserables is all that and more, so when I heard that my beloved Les Mis was hitting the big screen, I was a little worried. Would they get it right? Could they even attempt to recreate the magnificence of witnessing it on the stage. Well, not only did they get it right, they surpassed my expectations and made this the stand out movie of the year so far. With a stellar cast including Russell Crowe, Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Amanda Seyfried and Sacha Baron Cohen, Les Miserables is a deeply powerful and profound story that takes place against the backdrop of 19th Century France and the revolution and centers around the story of an ex prisoner named Jean Valjean who for decades has been hunted by a ruthless policeman, after he violates his parole. A young child comes into Jean's life by means of her dying mother and their lives are changed forever. With a soundtrack that will leave you breathless, Les Miserables will creep into your heart and steal it within seconds. Songs like Can You Hear The People Sing, I dreamed A Dream, and an unforgettable rendition of One Day More will have you spellbound. Les Miserables is one movie you not only have to see but own.

PARENTAL GUIDANCE

 

What happens when two highly educated, intelligent and bordering on obsessive parents go away and leave their children in the 'capable' hands of their old school grandparents? Chaos. This is one of the best family comedies we've seen in ages, and its bound to get you giggling. Grandparents Artie (Billy Crystal) and Diane (Bette Midler) get more than they bargained for when they get stuck babysitting the kids. When the ouma and oupa realise that the kids are controlling the house and not the other way around, rules need to be changed. Serving up some sugary snacks, backyard football and lots of love, these grandparents manages to outsmart the kids and achieve the impossible- bring the family closer together!
