Exciting times, a cracking musical gets transformed into a movie with a brilliant cast and with Cameron Mackintosh at the helm this cannot go wrong!
Hugh Jackman is up for a lead actor Oscar nomination for this, it would be great to see him win as his talent and performance deserves it.
It was always going to be difficult making the movie, but it seems to be a hit with both the critics and public. To be honest not much chance of it failing with the A star actors hired for it, Anne Hathaway does particular well especially given the iconic "Dreamed a Dream" song she has sing.
Eddie Redmayne might not be well known across the pond but he is shaping up into a fab actor and not a bad singer. It is worth looking back as some of his previous work, especially the period drama's.
