Victor HugoGÇÖs classic tale of pursuit, uprising and redemption, on which the musical sensation is based, is presented here in a lavishly restored edition. Jean Valjean (Richard Jordan GÇô The Hunt for Red October), a handsome young woodcutter, is cruelly sent to prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his starving family. Released from prison many years later, he faces freedom with an urge for revenge until he encounters the benevolent Bishop Myriel, who convinces him to become an honest man and to perform good deeds for others. However, Javert (Anthony Perkins GÇô Psycho), the ice-cold Inspector of Prisoners, relentlessly purses Valjean and is determined to put him back in prison. Les Miserables weaves a tale of courage, daring, escape, and the indomitable human spirit. Filmed in extravagant locations throughout France and elsewhere in Europe, it is truly a masterpiece of production.
