This movie is amazing! The book I'm still currently trying to read but the movie is powerful, strong, and I'm still amazed Russel Crowe can sing! I love how Anne Hathaway sang "I Dreamed a Dream" It was sad it was like feeling the misery of her character come out. That's why she sang it like that. Because in the past anyone else sang it to sound beautiful but it's the saddness that touches the heart and we all understand it and we all have had a misery at one time or another. If you don't like it then I say,"Forget you and go watch your dumb violent movies!"
