So....I bought my tickets in October....I have been looking forward to it for weeks....I took a whole box of tissues. And I didn't shed a single tear. Most disappointed. I wasn't emotionally invested in anyone except Fantine (yes Anne Hathaway is stunning but she dies too quickly). I was shocked by how nasal Hugh Jackman was. I expected Russell Crowe to be crap and he was but Hugh? Oscar nominated? He slaughtered my favourite song (Bring Him Home). I think the whole role was out of his range. Every time it went slightly tenor he sang through his nose and off key. Gutted! I'm glad I saw it but it didn't move me.
