Today we saw Les MisÃ©rables, the recent film version. As a teen who danced around and memorized every note of the French, London and Broadway soundtracks, I expected a lot from the movie. Alas, I was let down by the lack of singing ability by the two biggest male leads. The choppiness of the scenes and abbreviated libretto was startling as well.
That said, I did cry and enjoy it. However, I cried more while listening to the music at home before we went to the show. If you’re a fan of the musical, or don’t mind spoilers, I appreciated reading this article from a Wisconsin talk radio station’s website about the differences and departures the film took from the theater original production.
One day more.
