Short Story: In this film adaptation of the famed stage musical, the 1832 June Rebellion in Paris plays out on the silver screen. Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackman), previously imprisoned for stealing bread, breaks his parole and attempts to flee from Inspector Javert (Russell Crowe), a policeman who has tried to capture Valjean for years. Along the way, Valjean's story becomes intertwined with many others, including factory worker Fantine (Anne Hathaway) and her daughter Cosette (played as an adult by Amanda Seyfried).
