Cinema looks for distant relatives of Russel Crowe
With what's being tipped to be the biggest film of the year, the hunt is on the try and find relatives of Les Miserables star Russel Crowe.
It appears "(Crowe's) great great grandfather owned a fruit and veg shop in Wrexham, and there's a segment of the family that we believe still live there" according to Odeon cinema's Wrexham manager Andy Elvis, who're now looking for his family.
The hunt coincides with the release of the screen-adaption of Les Miserables, in cinemas from Friday, which Andy Elvis says tickets for the highly-anticipated film version of Victor Hugo's classic will be given to all those: "who can demonstrate they are a relative."
