LES MISERABLES (2012)
Les Miserables || In 1815, French prisoner Jean Valjean is released on parole from the Bagne of Toulon after serving nineteen years for stealing a loaf of bread for his sister’s daughter and trying to escape multiple times. On the outside, Valjean’s anger rises as his paroled status prevents him from getting work or accommodation. He offered shelter by the kindly Bishop of Digne, but Valjean steals his silverware. Captured by police and taken to the Bishop, Valjean is shocked when the Bishop answers he offered him the silver, telling him to use it to do something worthwhile with his life. Moved by the Bishop’s words, Valjean decides to break his parole and start a new life.
Eight years later in 1823, Valjean is now a respected factory owner and mayor of Montreuil, Pas-de-Calais. He shocked when Javert, formerly a Toulon prison guard, arrives as his new chief of police. Javert suspects Valjean’s real identity when he rescues an injured worker trapped under a heavy cart. One of Valjean’s workers, Fantine, is dismissed by the factory foreman upon learning she has an illegitimate daughter Cosette, whom she left to live with the greedy innkeepers, the Thénardiers, and to whom she sends all her earnings. To support her daughter, Fantine sells her hair, her teeth, becomes a prostitute and arrested by Javert when she attacks an abusive customer. Valjean, learning who she is, rescues her and takes her to the hospital.
Valjean later learns that a man has been wrongly identified as him, and decides to reveal his true identity to the court – before returning to the dying Fantine, promising to care for Cosette.
