Les Misérables (France, Ladj Ly, 2019)

When provincial police officer Stéphane joins the Anti-Crime Brigade in the Paris suburbs, he discovers a complex world where tensions between local neighbourhood groups run high, and his seasoned colleagues confront them by questionable methods. Director Ladj Ly brings depth, urgency, and a contemporary context to Victor Hugo’s age-old theme of how those without power must fight for justice.
