Inspired by the 2005 riots in Paris, LES MISÉRABLES – directed by Ladj Ly – follows Stéphane (Damien Bonnard), a recent transplant to the impoverished suburb of Montfermeil, as he joins the local anti-crime squad. Working alongside his unscrupulous colleagues Chris (Alexis Manenti) and Gwada (Djebril Zonga), Stéphane struggles to maintain order amidst the mounting tensions between local gangs. When an arrest turns unexpectedly violent, the three officers must reckon with the aftermath and keep the neighborhood from spiraling out of control.

"It's a portrait of a diverse France but also a divided one, ruled by geographical boundaries and racial barriers, [set in] a City of Light that sits on a powder keg."
David Fear - ROLLING STONE

"Ly's considerable skill aside, what makes LES MISERABLES such an immersive experience is the crackling sense of authenticity that is the film's birthright."
Kenneth Turan - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Ly shows command of staging and shooting throughout, simulating documentary form while maintaining a tight grip on narrative coherence."
Glenn Kenny - NEW YORK TIMES
