Is Les Miserables a “Christian” Film?

The most common contemporary Hollywood movie theme is revenge. So many movies are driven by the energy of “an eye for an eye, and tooth for a tooth.” Helen and I attended the musical film version of Les Miserables. I will let others comment on the actors and the singing, for I wish to comment on how clearly the themes of God’s grace and forgiveness came forth from the screen. Because music is the language of the soul, the songs riveted lyrics to melody, leaving us spellbound and at times in tears—not only at the music, but at the message it conveys!
