"Les Miserables" Presented by International Film Series

The 1998 film version of "Les Miserables" will be shown on Tuesday, February 12, at 6:30 p.m. Victor Hugo's great novel of revenge and redemption is brought to life by the artistry of director Billie August. Liam Neeson stars as Jean Valjean, the convict 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-winner Geoffrey Rush is the obsessed policeman determined to send Valjean back to prison. USA Today's reviewer called the movie "handsomely mounted, strikingly photographed and exquisitely acted." In English; please note that this is not the musical.
