Hugo's classic tale is set against the backdrop of political upheaval in 19th-century France and retains its timeless appeal with the struggles of former convict Jean Valjean. The suspenseful central plot traces Valjean's endeavor to emerge from desperate circumstances while being pursued by the duty-obsessed Inspector Javert. The principal characters retain their epic proportions, and the major themes of redemption through good works and the importance of authentic charity are undiminished.
