Based on the classic novel by Victor Hugo
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Today’s American audiences know the story of The Hunchback of Notre-Dame from Disney’s 1996 animated film. But Victor Hugo’s poignant novel from 1831, Notre-Dame de Paris, portrayed the Romantic era as one of the extremes in architecture, passion and religion. It brought the crumbling Notre Dame cathedral to the forefront of the public’s mind, and spurred a preservation movement for Europe’s Gothic architecture.
Recommended for audiences 10 and older, for some intense scenes.
