Les Miserables (2019) (15) 104mins

Nominated for both an Oscar and a Golden Globe, and winner of the Jury Prize at Cannes 2019.

Inspired by the 2005 Paris riots, director Ladj Ly's Oscar-nominated LES MISÉRABLES is a hugely topical provocative insight into the tensions between neighbourhood residents and police.

Stéphane has recently joined the Anti-Crime Squad in Montfermeil, in the suburbs of Paris, France, where Victor Hugo set his famed novel “Les Misérables”. Alongside his new colleagues Chris and Gwada - both experienced members of the team - he quickly discovers tensions running high between local gangs. When the trio finds themselves overrun during the course of an arrest, a drone captures the encounter, threatening to expose the reality of everyday life.

Directed by Ladj Ly and starring Damien Bonnard, Alexis Manenti and Djibril Zonga.

'compelling and terrifyingly real'  LA Times

'a simmering tale of two cities' ****The Guardian

'The tension never slackens...shocking, exciting and politically fascinating'  BBC Culture

'An enthralling, edifying, terrifying, sometimes funny and improbably stirring portrait of a multiethnic, polycultural cauldron'  Wall Street Journal

'In modern-day Montfermeil, the setting of Victor Hugo’s novel, the filmmaker Ladj Ly stages his own impassioned cry against oppression'  New York Times
