Les Misérables Trailer

“What if voicing anger… was the only way to be heard?” Amazon Studios has released the first official US trailer for the acclaimed French drama Les Misérables, which also won the Jury Prize (third place behind Parasite and Atlantics) at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. This film marks the feature directorial debut of very talented actor/filmmaker Ladj Ly, and it has nothing to do with the original “Les Misérables” book by Victor Hugo. It’s a contemporary story set in the suburbs of Paris. Stéphane joins the Anti-Crime Brigade of Montfermeil. He meets his new teammates, Chris and Gwada, and discovers the tensions between the cops and the locals in the district. Starring Damien Bonnard, Alexis Manenti, Djibril Zonga, Issa Perica, Al-Hassan Ly, Steve Tientcheu, Almamy Kanoute, and Jeanne Balibar. This was one of my favorite films out of Cannes this year, a remarkably powerful and invigorating film about cops and citizens. ›››
