I Dreamed A Dream...

Just got home from the cinema watching Les Misérables and I loved it, which was a little odd, because I remembered I first saw the musical more than 15 years ago when I was still in school but didn't enjoy it, partly because my English wasn't good enough to understand the story.

To me, what this movie did was let you experience all the raw emotion close up. It's a fantastic effort. Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway were terrific. The biggest revelation for me was Eddie Redmayne as Marius. Who knew he could sing so well? And Russell Crowe? He had the perfect as Javert but somehow his one dimensional voice just didn't do it for me.

Overall, slow start, accelerated phenominally and ended with a huge bang! GO AND WATCH IT!
