“The film becomes an enthralling, edifying, terrifying, sometimes funny and improbably stirring portrait of a multiethnic, polycultural cauldron where fury against injustice and neglect hovers near the boiling point.“ – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal. Read Full Review Here.
Stéphane, a recent transplant to the impoverished suburb of Montfermeil, joins the local anti-crime squad where he works alongside two unscrupulous colleagues. When an arrest turns unexpectedly violent, the three officers must reckon with the aftermath and keep the neighborhood from spiraling out of control. Inspired by the 2005 Parisian riots, LES MISÉRABLES, is from breakout director Ladj Ly. In French with English Subtitles.
