    I’m so happy for Andrea. I liked her emotionally powerful performance in “Shadow Dancer” so much…

  3. Christophe

    Wow! Now that’s a game changer! I wonder how that will affect the Oscar race… I guess Les mis is finally gaining momentum, better now than never :)

  4. Les Miserables is an excellent film and all involved should be proud. The American ratings for LM were baloney, so low for so much talent. I wonder if we need all those critics telling us their subjective viewpoint, which it turns out is worth a bucket of warm spit.
