2012's Oscar-baiting adaptation of the world-famous musical sees Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean, a prisoner who escapes the brutal tyranny of Javert (Russell Crowe) and promptly reinvents himself as a mayor and factory owner. Directed by Tom Hooper, the film went on to bag an Oscar for Anne Hathaway's Fantine. Smushy, over-the-top, it's exactly the kind of musical melodrama you need of a Sunday.
