Today I watched the movie called Les Miserables. This movie is based on the French Revolution. (Just so you know, I will leave a lot of holes in my summary because I really don’t want to spoil it for you!) So there is a slave, named Jean Valjean. He is a slave because he stole some bread to save his nephew. After being released into freedom for eight years, Jean V. is now the mayor of a town.
Then there is a woman. She works as a seamstress and her name is Fantine. One day, she is taken to the hospital by Jean (mayor) after being abused by men in alleys. She dies, asking him to take care of her daughter, Cosette. Jean then takes in Cosette as if his own daughter. They go into hiding because someone (Jaber) who was Jean’s old slave captor is looking for him.
When Cosette is 16, she sees a young boy and falls in love with him. Jean finds out and is devastated, to have his daughter taken away. He plans to get rid of the boy, but ends up helping him survive a bullet. They get married. And then Jaber kills himself, then Jean dies.
It is sooo……. sad but the tissues are worth it.
