What You Need To Know:
In the fourth episode of LES MISERABLES, Cosette has grown into a young woman. She and Jean Valjean leave the convent and find the streets of Paris filled with poverty and political unrest. Though Valjean tries to sequester Cosette away from danger, her curiosity about the real world outside the convent leads to an unwelcome meeting with the innkeepers and introduces Cosette to a young man named Marius. Raised by his aristocratic grandfather to believe that political revolutionaries (including his own father) were traitors, Marius is horrified when he discovers his father was actually a war hero. This discovery leads him to leave behind his privileged life and join the impoverished political radicals calling for revolution.
While earlier episodes of LES MISERABLES depicted poverty and prostitution in a somber and painful manner, the fourth episode displays it in a flagrant, angry fashion. One of the most notable scenes involves a brothel where all manner of sexual immorality is hinted at or openly revealed. The intensity of the episode is purposeful. It sets the tone for revolution by revealing the depth of destitution faced by the poor. MOVIEGUIDE® advises extreme caution for this episode’s lewd content.
