Jackson and Crowe did a good job. Ann did too but I wasn't all gaga over her part. I don't think it was as amazing as the Oscar people are saying .
I liked it and thought it was well done. (Except for when Ann sang I dreamed a dream). She did a beautiful job on it. I had no idea she had such a good voice... But the close-up was toooooooo close-up and all I could do was look at her teeth....
I'd probably give it 7 stars as opposed to your dd's 4 though... My girls loved it
They did need an intermission though. Good grief! I love the longer movie. It's like I'm fianally getting what I paid for but my bladder is too small for tht! Lol.
Ha ha ha! Yes, her focus is on voice. I guess the casting director didn't give as much attention to strong singers as she would have. lol
Who are singers that could also do the movie? There were a lot of big names in it, but none of them known for their singing. Interesting how they choose, eh?
