Anne Hathaway's voice I don't think is quite properly suited for Fantine; she puts a lot of great emotion into it, but it needs some more driving force in my opinion. Ah, well...at least they didn't cast Taylor Swift as Eponine. For that, I will be ever in the directors' debt.
Oh,and I'm very glad that they cast Helena Bonham Carter. I love her! Oh, and I can't really argue about the fact that Hugh Jackman is playing in it...I mean, really, who would?
