A Little Fall of Rain is in the movie, just not on the 'highlights', which is stupid. Then again, the highlights is missing Do You Hear The People Sing as well, which is one of the best songs in the show in my opinion!
Well Hugh Jackman's done musical theatre before, as have Aaron Tveit (Enjolras) and Samantha Barks (Eponine). So the leads are basically half theatre-trained and half not.
I have just purchased the 25th anniversary DVD (which Samantha Barks was in) so will give that a watch soon, looking forward to it!
Is Eponine's death actually in 'A little fall of rain' (in the movie, for those who have seen it)? Or after? It seems things have been shifted around (judging by the soundtrack).
