With a star studded cast featuring Hugh Jackman, Anne Hathaway, Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Sacha Baron Cohen, Helena Bonham Carter, and Dakota Fanning, I came in with high expectations. Each and every cast member thoroughly impressed me. What was more impressive was the fact that they all sang the songs live instead of voicing over the scenes with pre-recorded songs. And Tom Hooper's style was very evident as the cinematography was wonderful (he also directed The King's Speech). Plus, the story was all new to me as I had never read the play nor seen any other renditions of it. I was beyond compelled by the stories of love, revolution, and redemption in this movie, and at that I highly recommend it to everyone!
Really agreed with your review. Only thing is, Dakota Fanning isn't on this film. You mean young Cosette? The little blonde girl? That's not Fanning.
Fanning is 19 years old nowadays!
