I hate musicals. I’ve never seen a version of Les Mis. I had zero interest in seeing it. Didn’t know the story, didn’t care. I saw this and all I have to say is wow. I thought this was an incredible movie that worked on every level. I loved the story, think Hugh Jackman should have won for Best Actor (sorry Daniel Day), and have reconsidered what I think should have won Best Picture (sorry Argo). Aside from a 15 minute bathroom break in the middle (characters sing loooong boring love songs with lyrics like “I love him, he loves her, she loves him, zzzzzz) this flick was awesome.
