Les Miserables|Victor Hugo

Overview

In this story of the trials of the peasant Jean Valjean--unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert--Victor Hugo achieved the rare imaginative resonance that allows a work of art to transcend its genre.

Les Misérables is at once a tense thriller that contains one of the most compelling chase scenes in literature (a pursuit through the sewers of Paris), an epic portrayal of the 19th-century French citizenry, and a vital drama of the redemption of one human being.

Now Columbia/TriStar and Mandalay Entertainment bring this masterpiece--a longtime favorite on Broadway--to the screen in the grand style of an old-fashioned Hollywood epic with an all-star cast. The film, starring Liam Neeson, Geoffrey Rush, Uma Thurman and Claire Danes, is sure to be a hit when it opens this spring. Our official Everyman's Library tie-in edition brings Victor Hugo to the Library for the first time.
