A gen­uine clas­sic Hav­ing seen the mu­si­cal and watched sev­eral movie and TV adap­ta­tions, I have to com­mend the BBC for its songfree ver­sion of Les Mis­érables.

It’s true to Vic­tor Hugo’s clas­sic novel and the star-stud­ded cast, in­clud­ing Lily Collins [pic­tured, as Fan­tine], play their parts with gusto. Those dis­ap­pointed by the lack of singing should try read­ing the orig­i­nal book.
