Eating my words.

I went to see Les Mis over the weekend and now I can't get this song out of my head.  It's stuck there.  I go to bed singing it, I wake up signing it, it circles in my brain throughout the day.

I was skeptical going in to see this movie.  I didn't think I would cry, particularly at any scene Anne Hathaway was in.

I am officially eating my words.  Her rendition of this song was amazing.  She sucked me into the story and I firmly stayed put there for almost 3 hours, shedding tears off and on but mostly during the scenes Miss Hathaway starred in.  Shoot.

So just as the message of Les Mis is grace, a new chance, a clean slate - I hereby declare I don't hate Anne anymore.  In fact I think she should probably get best actress.

Just listen....

And even though I wasn't "quite" as emotional as this lady after seeing the movie,  it's possible my dad was.  I just wish I would have been there to see it!


  1. I've been humming that song off and on since I saw it too!!! Hahaha your Dad couldn't even talk.

  2. Haha! I was humming it this morning and Curt was laughing at me. I told him it was frustrating to have all this music in my head but not know the words! I want to SING IT OUT, but can only hum!
    Would go see it again, so good!

  3. Susie: there's actually a video on youtube with all the words!!!! So you can SING ALONG!! :) And yes, I want to see it again too - but apparently it won't be with Mr. Veen.;)

  4. I enjoyed it. But it was too long for me to want to sit through again. Though I will pick up the soundtrack.
