Team Jacob? Team Edward?
Phhhh … Victor Hugo created the original teen love triangle with this story of young yearning between Cosette (Amanda Seyfried), the adult daughter of the tragic Fantine, and Marius (My Week With Marilyn‘s Eddie Redmayne), and — unseen in this clip — Eponine (newcomer Samantha Barks), the shockingly noble daughter of the thieving innkeepers the Thenardiers (Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.)
“A Heart Full of Love” has a little Valjean at the beginning, and a little Eponine at the end, but it’s largely a duet between Cosette and Marius, a student revolutionary who is beginning to wonder whether his cause is worth dying for.
Universal would be wise to put out a clip of Redmayne singing Marius signature solo “Empty Chairs at Empty Tables,” since he has a strong shot at a supporting actor nomination with the right bit of luck.
