New York, December 3, 2012 -  The star-studded cast of Working Title/Cameron Mackintosh's upcoming motion picture adaptation of the smash mega-musical "Les Misérables," led by Hugh Jackman (Jean Valjean), Anne Hathaway (Fantine), Amanda Seyfried (Cosette), Samantha Barks (Eponine), and Eddie Redmayne (Marius), threw a dinner party for the members of the international press (Hollywood Foreign Press Association [HFPA]) at Porter House in Columbus Circle last night. 

The stars, together with lead producer Cameron Mackintosh ("Miss Saigon," "Mary Poppins") and film director Tom Hooper ("The King's Speech"), were in town for a series of press junkets.

Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, "Les Misérables" tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice, and redemption - a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after Valjean breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.

"Les Misérables" opens across North America on Christmas day.
