I too am a big Les Mis fan. I saw the film today and was simply blown away. The singing is often imprecise but it is raw and emotional. The big numbers, such as Fantine's I Dreamed a Dream, Valjean's Let him Live, and Marcus's Empty Chairs at Empty Tables were gut wrenching. I Dreamed a Dream had me bawling, as I suspect many others in the theater were too. At the end of the film, the audience spontaneously applauded. See it, you won't be sorry. 10 Stars out of 10. I was so impressed that I ordered th 10th Anniversary DVD today, despite realizing that I will inevitably double dip and buy the BD when it is finally released.
PS: Just remembered Eponine's beautiful and ineffably sad, On My Own, sung by the beautiful and talented Samantha Barks. Jesus! Barks also played Eponine in the 25th Anniversary concert.
