The plot: Convict Jean Valjean is granted parole and reinvents himself as a revered factory owner in Montreuil-sur-Mer, where one of his workers, Fantine, is cruelly cast out when the foreman learns she has an illegitimate daughter, Cosette. Valjean agrees to raise the child as his own but wily Inspector Javert is on the ex-con's trail, leading to a confrontation on the streets of Paris, where revolutionary fervour sloshes through the gutters.

what the others say
"Tom Hooper gets a bit carried away with swoopy shots, and the close-ups are unrelenting, but crucially he lets the filth and the squalor in."
"Spectacular to look at and often poignantly beautiful to listen to, this won't disappoint the millions who have sighed at the stage play."
"Rings with all the emotion and power of the source and provides a new model for the movie musical."
