It was this afternoon at the Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center.
It's 100% successful, absolutely great on every level. It will be hard to beat for Best Picture, Best Director (Tom Hooper), Best Actor (Hugh Jackman) and Best Supporting Actress (Anne Hathaway). The little kid who plays Gavroche should be up for Best Supporting Actor. The one new song "Suddenly" is lovely and could be up for Best Song if there's a category. There was huge applause after pretty much every musical number, particularly Jackman's and Hathaway's. Russell Crowe (Javert) is the only one I had a teensy problem with because he's not a singer like the others but he still looks great and acts it well.
Hooper, Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne (Marius), Mandy Seyfried (Cosette) and Samantha Barks (Eponine) did a q&a afterwards. Hooper gave a speech before the screening telling us he had only put the finishing touches on it at 2 am on Wednesday morning.
