Ella, Melinda & I finally saw the new Les Misérables movie today. It’s been on our To-do list since it came out on Christmas Day but a lot of things kept us from attending. It kind of dawned on all of us together early in the afternoon that we were free today.
We enjoyed it a lot, I can say. The book is one of my all-time favorites and Ella has long enjoyed many of the songs from the Broadway musical. We walked out of the theater with plans for me to read the book aloud to her. That will be fun.
If you haven’t seen it, the last main scene, when Marius and Cosette come to find Jean Valjean slipping away, is quite the tearjerker. Consider that your only spoiler from me.
Man, that Victor Hugo thought up a pretty good story.
