This 1998 version of the movie Les Misérables, directed by Bille August, is based on the French historical novel by Victor Hugo (1802–65), first published in 1862. The movie stars Liam Neeson, Geoffrey Rush, Uma Thurman, and Claire Danes. As in the original novel, the storyline follows the adult life of Jean Valjean, an ex-convict (paroled following 19 years of hard labor, for stealing bread) pursued by police Inspector Javert.
