I’ve been annoyed at the way the previews and movie posters have made her out to be this huge part of the film, when I and anyone who has seen the musical knows that Fontine isn’t around for very long, so I couldn’t understand why she was being billed seemingly as the star of the show. I tried to dislike Anne Hathaway for this very reason, but alas, I could not. Her performance, small in part, but grand in delivery was one of the highlights of the film. Plus, let's face it. Anyone who makes themselves look ugly and cut their hair for a role is practically guaranteed an Oscar.
Overall, I give Les Miserables 2 thumbs up.
