This version concentrates on the story of Valjean and Javert, with less emphasis on the romance between Cosette and Marius. Thénardier, a key character in the novel, appears in just one scene; his daughter, Eponine, is only seen in the background. Many fans of the musical version bemoaned the loss of Eponine and her love triangle with Marius and Cosette. See more »
When Inspector Javert is at the home of Cosette and Jean ValJean, he writes a letter and asks Cosette for an envelope which she produces for him. The type of pre folded, flap envelope that Cosette gives him would not have been invented or for commercial use in 1832, the time period of Les Miserables.
Rather, correspondence would have been folded inside another sheet of paper and sealed with a wax seal and brass sealing ring or tied with a string or ribbon. See more »

They could not have chosen a better cast! Uma Thurman is extremely talented; very convincing as a selfless mother who will do anything to make sure her child is taken care of. Liam Neeson and Geoffrey Rush: they make this movie so intense, it reaches in and grabs your heart; joy, sorrow, fear, anger, pity, every emotion necessary for such a timeless classic.
