Are you ready to see the epic French movie, Les Miserables? You’ll get the chance to watch it for free on Amazon Prime Video in April 2020.
April is shaping up to be a great month for Amazon Prime Video. Tales of the Loop is just one of the new additions to the streaming service. But there’s more than that. Les Miserables has now been added to the list of movies heading to Amazon Prime Video during the month.
This isn’t the musical version starring Hugh Jackman. In fact, it’s not even a take on the Victor Hugo novel. It’s a modern-day movie set in Montfermeil, France.

There are some elements that feel similar. After all, it would seem odd to name a movie the same as a popular book and musical only to see it tell an entirely different tale. However, it’s also been inspired by the Parisian riots in 2005. You’ll be able to see how it all plays together on Apr. 10, 2020.
This is certainly a movie you want to check out. Stéphane is new to the impoverished suburb of Monfermeil and he decides to join the anti-crime squad in the area. When he starts working with two colleagues, he finds himself in the middle of an arrest that turns violent. Now it’s up to the police to prevent the neighborhood from spiraling out of control, but those who can’t even feed their families are willing to do anything.
Critics and audiences both agree that Les Miserables is a movie worth checking out. It holds a Certified Fresh seal with an 84% score on Rotten Tomatoes from critics. Audiences give it an 88% approval rating.
Check out the trailer for the movie to see a tease of it for yourself:
