Slate is now posting its Spoiler Special podcasts—in which Dana Stevens talks in detail about new and forthcoming movies with a guest—here on Brow Beat. You can listen to past Spoiler Specials here, and you can also subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
In the latest installment, Dana Stevens and David Haglund discuss Les Misérables, Tom Hooper's adaptation of the Victor Hugo classic, which stars Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, and Anne Hathaway, and which Dana Stevens reviewed last week. Is the singing good enough? Is the story interesting? Is Jean Valjean a superhero?
All that and more discussed below. Enjoy.
