LES MISERABLES

Les MiserablesLes Miserables is a real tear jerker which is unsuitable for younger children. It is based on Victor Hugo's epic novel, spanning two decades in the life of Jean Valjean: starting in Digne in France in 1815, moving to Montfermeil in 1823 and eventually getting to Paris in 1832.

The relentless policeman Javert pursues escaped convict Jean Valjean for years through revolutionary France. Valjean becomes a factory owner and mayor, agrees to raise the daughter of dying prostitute and joins the fight for freedom. None of this impresses Javert - until Valjean saves his life.
