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.
The leads here I refer to Cosette, Fantine, JV, Javert (and probably Marius). Javert is clearly the weakest. Cosette is okay. Fantine is a bit weak but her emotions(?) make her performance much better. Marius's is a bit surprising to me, his is not that bad at all
