Marius' answer to Cosette is intercepted by Valjean, who joins the revolution to guard Marius. However, the bishop says the silverware was a gift, proving Valjean's innocence by giving him two silver candlesticks.
For me she is a shoo in for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar.
In addition, the Bishop sings with Fantine during "Valjean's Death" instead of Eponine, as was in the stage musical. Sign in to vote.
There are some very strong performances here. Not only does this scene establish the hard life Valjean has lived as a slave, but the film as a whole. Javert pretends to be an ally to spy on the rebels but the street urchin Gavroche exposes him as a policeman.
I really wanted to like this, but came away thinking of what could have been. At the end of the day (pun intended), Les Miserables is all about the music, the characters, and the emotions, and this film delivers. I expect many award nominations for this.
