Just watched Les Mis and sobbed my heart out when Anne Hathaway sang "I dream a dream".  I think it's the first few breaths she takes before she starts singing. It's heart breaking.    The other actors are superb as well, ironically they outshine Helena BC and Sacha BC, with their acting and singing.  And the music and the lyrics are incredible. In truth, they are the real stars. For those who haven't watched the stage play, the film is mesmerising.

  1. But it's 40 minutes too long - and any film that climaxes with a triumphal reference to a failed revolution nobody has ever heard of (1832 in France???) is seriously flawed. Liked the dry-docking of the boat at the start though.
