One of my favorite musicals is Les Miserables, and I enjoyed the segment from last night's Oscar ceremony. Did you see it? What did you think? I'll confess, Eponine was always my favorite character.
Eponine is a wonderful character and the actress they chose for the movie has a lovely, rich voice. But Anne Hathaway blew me away--I had no idea she could pull off such a heartrending role.
I love the play and was hesitant to see the movie, not a fan of most film versions of live theatricals. We went the day after Christmas and I loved it. The director's decision to have the actors sing live in the moment made all the difference. Anne Hathaway tears your heart out and it's so cool that she got to perform the same role as her mom did before her.
