Les Miserables Poster Eschews The Film's Big Names
When you've got Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, and Amanda Seyfried in a film, how do you decide which of them to put on the poster without pissing off whoever's left out?
You don't put any of them!
Instead, you put a haunting image of little Isabelle Allen, who plays the young Cosette. (She grows up to be Seyfried. Don't we all?)
And yet it's not too haunting, not the kind of thing that could come off terribly upsetting.
This little girl is suffering for sure, but in a sort of beautiful, windswept-hair kind of way that I like.
And who could be that upset with pretty blue eyes like that?
