Victor Hugo's stirring novel of redemption and revolution is brought to life by the artistry of director Billie August and his brilliant cast. Liam Neeson stars as Jean Valjean, a heartless convict who is transformed by a single act of mercy. Uma Thurman is Fantine, the vulnerable prostitute who begs Valjean to raise her only child, Cosette (Claire Danes). And Oscar(R)-winner Geoffrey Rush (Best Actor, SHINE, 1996) is an ambitious policeman determined to return Valjean to prison. A truly epic film, LES MISERABLES is magnificent! A compelling and powerful human drama with terrific performances by Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush.
