Les Misérables
Blu-ray $23.99 / DVD $19.96

It dominated the 2012-13 awards season, sweeping three top Golden Globes and netting a Best Actress Oscar for Anne Hathaway, whose searing performance of the song “I Dreamed A Dream” was a jaw-dropper. This groundbreaking movie version of the worldwide-hit stage musical, featuring an all-star cast of Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and others singing live on-camera (instead of lip-syncing to tracks), comes to Blu-ray with almost an hour of exclusive behind-the-scenes material, including interviews; documentaries about constructing and creating the movie’s massive sets; and commentary from director Tom Hooper.
