Many forget that Les Misérables was originally a book written by Victor Hugo in 1862 and is widely considered one of the greatest novels of all time. However, the popularity of the long running Broadway show and the recent popularity of the Golden Globe nominated and probably Oscar nominated film has brought this French Revolution based story to its height of popularity. While the tale is centered mainly around Jean Valjean’s quest for redemption, I would argue that there is an underlying message on the importance of home especially in the recent cinematic adaptation directed by Tom Hooper.
