Movie Monday (on a Tuesday): Les Miz.

If I could write this whole post as a love letter to the brilliant performances of Amanda Seyfried, Eddie Redmayne and Samantha Barks, who conveyed my favorite love triangle of all time better than I have ever seen it, ever, I would, but I know that would only interest me and know one else.... I totally believed that Marius and Cosette fell in love at first sight because I fell in love with them as well. When Eponine’s face lights up at the slightest bit of attention from Marius I melted and felt died a little on the inside in pity for her. They were amazingly brilliant and if the whole movie was about them I would watch it over and over again...

 Ok now that I got that out of my system.....

Anne Hathaway - You were absolutely breathtaking and I loved your long hair! It was so pretty and you should never cut it again! You’re voice was unexpectedly beautiful and so full of emotion. “I Dreamed a Dream” was the most appropriately heart-wrenching (is that a thing?) thing I have ever seen ever. You are so deserving of all the praise you have received. Oh and PS, SHE DID IT ALL IN ONE TAKE BITCHES!

Aaron Tveit, Gavroche and the Barricade Boys - You were without a doubt the best part of the movie. Seriously Jean Valjean and Javert who?! Your scenes were so full of emotion, I wanted to be on the barricade with you!

Samantha Barks - I know I already mentioned her but homegirl gets her own paragraph. Best Eponine Ever! And that’s saying something because it’s my dream role. She is the best character in the history of musical theater (number two probably being Millie... or Ilse) and she played her brilliantly and with so much life. Making her an actual person instead of a lovesick, lost, little girl.
