Reviews are embargoed for Tom Hooper's "Les Miserables," which screened for the first time Thanksgiving weekend, but some tweets have hit the internet, promising some spectacular performances and indicating a likelihood of audience tears.  Indiewire has gathered several tweets, including our own, here. Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly has snagged exclusive first interviews with Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway, where the pair discuss preparing for these difficult roles - Jackman goes as far as to compare the stress of live singing to doing a nude scene.  In the film, Jackman plays Jean Valjean, a man imprisoned after stealing food to feed his family, who changes his identity and comes across a great fortune to find himself a respected member of society.  Anne Hathaway plays Fantine, a hapless factory worker for Valjean who suffers through her share of struggles.  Here are some snips from the interview; a clip of Jackman is posted »
