 Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables
 tells an enthralling story of broken dreams and unrequited love,

 passion, sacrifice and redemption—a timeless testament to the
 survival of the human spirit. Ex-prisoner Jean Valjean is hunted
 for decades by the ruthless policeman Javert after he breaks parole.
 When Valjean agrees to care for factory worker Fantine’s young
 daughter, Cosette, their lives change forever. The world’s longest-
 running musical brings its power to the big screen in Tom Hooper’s

 sweeping and spectacular interpretation of Victor Hugo’s epic tale
