I must admit I got emotional the first time I heard Anne Hathaway singing Dreamed A Dream on the Les Misérables trailer. Maybe it was because it was shown on a giant LCD screen at Bryant Park during Tropfest, and the speakers were right in my face. Regardless, this is another film I’m really looking forward to.

‘Les Miserables’ Official Trailer: Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the survival of the human spirit. Jackman plays ex-prisoner Jean Valjean, hunted for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert (Crowe) after he breaks parole. When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s (Hathaway) young daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever.
