Go See This Movie!

Les Miserables, a book by Victor Hugo, has long been a successful stage musical. The musical has now been made into a motion picture starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and and Anne Hathaway. It is now playing.

Hugo says of his work, "The book which the reader has before him at this moment is, from one end to the other, in its entirety and details ... a progress from evil to good, from injustice to justice, from falsehood to truth, from night to day, from appetite to conscience, from corruption to life; from bestiality to duty, from hell to heaven, from nothingness to God. The starting point: matter, destination: the soul.  The hydra at the beginning, the angel at the end."

It a movie that has much to say about our faith as Christians and how we should live that faith. After you've seen it, let me know what you think.

Note: The film is rated PG-13 and does have adult themes.
