If you ask me if I preferred the movie Premiere ( London December 5) or the after party … I would be lying if I said the movie… "Les Miserables" is a British musical drama film which is based on the musical which is based on the novel from Victor Hugo..The cast, Hugh Jackman, Russel Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Helena Bonham Carter,
just to name a few, were fantastic. I knew Hugh Jackman was a great singer/ dancer/ performer.. but I was surprised to hear all the others sing, and sing so well .. the movie is perhaps a little too long if you are not a musical fanatic.. but the cast’s performance is truly exceptional. As for the after party… somewhere in Camden … there was probably a few hundred people attending, we joined the cast for kisses and congratulations. I met Hugh Jackman for the first time that evening, and as much as I thought he was the best host the Oscars ever had a few years ago, and as much as I think he should win an Oscar for his performance in Les Miserables, I was pleasantly surprised to meet a polite, respectful, charming unpretentious gentleman. I should also mention that Sacha Baron Cohen ( Borat ) and Eddie Redmayne, were both delightful.Thank you Herbert ( Herbert Ypma, Hip Hotels )for inviting me to this fun evening!
