Ummm...are you suggesting that "On My Own" uses the same melody as "I Dreamed a Dream"? Because it doesn't....

J, no. Give me a little credit. My tin ear is not that tinny.

On stage, the correspondence between Fantine and Eponine is underscored by having both of them in the big quintet at the end. The movie inexplicably deletes Eponine from this number; one of a handful of quibbles I have with it.


I loved this post, and I agree with every word. Eponine is Fantine reprised, and I think that's what makes her so interesting. I also think that she's a great symbol of a strong woman whose only downfall is her love for someone who doesn't love her back.

Plus, I adore Samantha Barks and I think it's awful she got overlooked for her work in Les Mis. She's owned the character of Eponine for at least three or four years now and she deserved to be recognized for stealing the show, especially away from Amanda Seyfried, who did nothing for me as Cosette (partly because I detest the Cosette character).

I wrote my own post about this, too. I find Eponine so very fascinating!
