Les Misérables film (France, 1958) with talkback with Anna Barker and Ben Delgado

October 3, 2022 @ 6:30 pm


Peasant Jean Valjean (Jean Gabin) suffered through decades in French prison for stealing a loaf of bread, but once released, life doesn’t automatically become easier. Not only does the community shun him as an ex-convict, but a policeman named Javert (Bernard Blier) refuses to believe he’s a good man. Wherever Valjean goes, Javert follows, intent on proving Valjean is still a criminal. Yet Valjean is determined to create a new, crime-free life for himself, no matter what.

Presented with a 10 minute intermission.
