Amazing - I would give it more stars if I could!
I have not seen the stage show and was worried that i may not understand the story (my friend had tried to explain to me beforehand but I was completely confused!). There was no need to have been concerned. It was the most wonderful film, in which I was totally enthralled from beginning to end. Everyone surprised me with the high standard of singing, with special mentions to Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe (totally unexpected - he was fantastic) and Anne Hathaway (my favourites in that order). I was warned to take tissues - managed to hold myself together - just - but it was touch and go by the end of the film. Can't wait to get hold the the DVD now!
