Box Office: caught up in testing times of human lives

Today Da Stitch reviews two fantastic movies, set in the testing times of human lives. Les Miserables and Django Unchained, movies director by two gifted directors within the story telling industry.

 Les Miserable

Director: Tom Hooper

Cast: Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe and Anne Hathaway

Set in the era of 19th century France, Les Miserables tells a story of bashed and hopeless dreams, love, passion, sacrifice and redemption. The storyline reflects a testament of the survival of the human spirit. Jean Valjean played by Jackman is an ex-prisoner wanted for decades by the hearthless policeman Javert. The movie possesses a thrilling storyline and a super weight cast that’s talented enough to keep the eyes glued onto the big screen.

Django Unchained

Director: Quentin Tarantino

Cast: Jamie Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kerry Washington

Quentin Tarantino, the master mind of thrillers such as Reservior Dogs and Inglourious Basterds has once again dished out a film that has the ability to catch our eyes and lure us to enter the cinema. Django Unchained is a Western film that follows a freed slave (Foxx) who travels across America with a bounty hunter (Waltz) on a mission to rescue his wife (Washington) from a cruel and ruthless plantation owner. The film couldn’t have come at a great moment, as it’s that crazy time of the year where rewards are earned.
