A whole lotta history
If you can’t quite commit to reading Les Misérables or Anna Karenina, don’t fret – simply head along to the cinema to catch these two literary masterpieces on the silver screen! Everyone is talking about the all-star cast of Les Mis (Hugh Jackman! Anne Hathaway! And we have a definite soft spot for Eddie Redmayne too *wink*); we reckon you’ll be snapping up its stirring soundtrack almost as soon as you leave the cinema! Meanwhile, Keira Knightley gets her turn to shine as Anna Karenina in the hotly-anticipated version of Leo Tolstoy’s classic, seeing her join forces once more with director Joe Wright – and if their work on Atonement and Pride & Prejudice is anything to go by, we’re bound to love Anna Karenina (and its gorgeous costumes) too!
When: Les Misérables out now; Anna Karenina showing from January 10
Where: All good cinemas in Hong Kong!
