Emily and I went to see Les Misérables today, and I really enjoyed it. I wasn't familiar with the story of Les Misérables, so I did some research online so I at least had a clue as to what was going on, and that helped. All the actors were brilliant, but I thought Hugh Jackman was just amazing! I didn't realize he was playing the main character until it was a ways along in the movie and he was back to his normal weight! I read tonight he lost 15 pounds to play the role at the beginning of the movie, and then gained 30 pounds back for his character as the movie went on.
Unfortunately, Emily did not have such a good time. She's not a fan of musicals of any sort, but I thought it would be a good experience for her to see it. In her words, "The parts that weren't boring were scary, and the parts that weren't scary were boring." LOL At least she gave it a try. Needless to say she won't be seeing any more musicals anytime soon.
