He's really good in Les Misérables! They all are.

The first time he really caught my eye was in Pillars of the Earth.

It's based on a historical novel by Ken Follett and it revolves around the building of a cathedral during the 12th century in England. There are a lot of people involved with it and with each other. The power struggles, conspiracies and love between Jack (Eddie's character) and Aliena (Hayley Atwell) are in focus. Jack is a bit of an outsider with a talent for stone carving and building and he falls for the girl (Aliena) from a noble family. It's really good!!

It's got a lot of good actors and actresses in it so I say: go for it! It's pretty long though

Jack and Aliena
