Do you hate musicals? Do you think West End shows are naff? Well, you might find yourself converted by Tom Hooper’s rabble-rousing film of London’s longest running musical (staggering fact: 60 million people worldwide have seen Les Mis). On Hooper’s side is a dream cast of Hollywood’s finest performing live on camera. Not everyone will be sold by the emotional thwack of Claude-Michel Schönberg’s earworm numbers. What gives it a beating heart is that the actors are singing live – rather than the normal practice of lip-synching in the studio.
