On Friday, i went and seen the "highly" acclaimed Les Miserables.. Well Russell Crowe was clearly cast for his acting ability, as he cannot hold a note! Hugh is the same as he was not an excellent singer.. he did deliver the actors side of the role, however it is a musical..
I come to Anne Hathaway, she plays the part of ill fated Fantine, gets the sack and turns to being a prostitute.. she is up for an oscar, she is in it for a 50 minute time period.. Taylor Swift auditioned for the role and can i say, thank fuck she did not get it as Anna, for the short period of time she was in it, she did sing and act the role of a down and out excellently.
Amanda Seyfreind is the pure annoyance...
However, the performances by Helena Bonham Carter, Sacha Baron Cohen, Samantha Barks and Eddie Redmayne were excellent..
it was good, not as good as everyone is making it out to be though 2.5 hours and 3/5 stars
