No surprise here, but the recent success of the film adaptaion of Broadway hit Les Miserables has been due in part to the influence of Christians.

Themes of grace, human dignity, and redemption made for a pop-hit among believers, especially given the strategic marketing of the film to Christian thought and culture leaders by NBC Universal.
