So my friend Irene came over my house and watched Les Miserables. I don't have a choice but watch the movie again. And guess what? I got the same reaction when I first watched the movie myself - in total AWE.
Actors Hugh Jackman (Jan Valjean) and Russel Crowe (Javert) did a great job playing their roles. They just made me fall in love with both of them all over again. The women - Anne Hathaway (Fantine) and Amanda Seyfried (Cosette) were not only gorgeous. They proved to me that they both have singing prowess! I was definitely surprised that Amanda can sing! LOL!
I actually haven't watched a musical. This is my first time to have seen a musical and it's in a film. I like it better because the emotions are felt by the audience such as myself since the words were not only said. They were sang.
I would love to watch some more musical in the future. I just hope I'd be able to get a ticket for free or not that expensive, though.
Here's a plot of the movie Les Miserables courtesy of imdb.com:
In 19th-century France, Jean Valjean, who for decades has been hunted by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole, agrees to care for factory worker Fantine's daughter, Cosette. The fateful decision changes their lives forever.
I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't get into details of the movie. I want you all to watch the movie yourself and appreciate it. Happy viewing! :)
