Review

Our Score
Richard Jordan and Anthony Perkins take on the challenging roles of Valjean (the hunted) and Javert (the hunter) respectively in Victor Hugo's classic tale, investing this impressive TV movie with intelligence and depth. Director Glenn Jordan, a TV movie specialist whose early career was in the theatre, gives a luxurious (and thus ironic) feel to the claustrophobic world of Hugo's characters, providing plenty of room for his two stars to shine. Jordan's reward was an Emmy Award nomination.
