Listen: The Best Part Of 'Les Miserables,' Anne Hathaway's "I Dreamed A Dream" In Full

Whether you love Tom Hooper's long and loud "Les Miserables," or if you're less enthused (like this writer), most everyone can agree that the highlight, the standout sizzle reel moment, is Anne Hathaway's heartbreaking rendition of "I Dreamed A Dream." As Fantine, her role may not be big, but Hathaway arguably delivers the film's most poignant, wrenching performance, and now you can enjoy it in full.

Anne Hathaway Les Miserables

Whether you love Tom Hooper's long and loud "Les Miserables," or if you're less enthused (like this writer), most everyone can agree that the highlight, the standout sizzle reel moment, is Anne Hathaway's heartbreaking rendition of "I Dreamed A Dream." As Fantine, her role may not be big, but Hathaway arguably delivers the film's most poignant, wrenching performance, and now you can enjoy it in full.

The full song from the soundtrack has landed online (for now) and it captures the raw take Hathaway brings to the track, which as you remember, was sung live on the set while cameras were rolling, not in the studio. And again, say what you will about the movie, the gambit paid off for Hooper, as it gives the cinematic version of the hit musical a lived in, authentic feeling. And it helps to drive the dramatic stakes home.

"Les Miserables" is in theaters now with the soundtrack on store shelves as well. Listen below. [DigitalSpy]
