I have just seen this movie and I have to say this movie is so good. This movie is based off of the award winning musical “Les Miserable”. The whole movie is singing there is not really much talking in it so it is very interesting and you have to watch closely because they will change scenes or songs and you won’t realize it. This movie is set In 1815 in France and is Based on the novel by Victor Hugo, 'Les Miserables' travels with prisoner-on-parole, 24601, Jean Valjean, as he runs from the ruthless Inspector Javert on a journey beyond the barricades, at the center of the June Rebellion. Meanwhile, the life of a working class girl with a child is at turning point as she turns to prostitution to pay money to the evil innkeeper and his wife who look after her child, Cosette. Valjean promises to take care of the child, eventually leads to a love triangle between Cosette, Marius who is a student of the rebellion, and Eponine, a girl of the streets. The people sing of their anger and Enjolras leads the students to fight upon the barricades. All of the actors and actresses did an amazing job. They made you actually feel like you were in the movie and feeling all of the action and drama right along with them. I don’t know why but I loved all of the actresses in this movie except Amanda Seyfried I don’t really like her in any movies she’s in although she has an incredible voice. Another actress who did a really good job I just didn’t care for her in this movie I felt this just wasn’t her personality or type of movie to do and that Anne Hathaway. I liked the whole movie but my favorite pat of the movie is when they sing master of the house. That’s my favorite part of the movie because its really fun and catchy. Another one of my absolute favorite parts of the movie is when fantine sings I dreamed a dream it’s a tear jerker she makes it so good and she puts so much emotion into it, it’s fantastic and the song
