shows kindness to Jean is by inviting him into his home for dinner and a place to sleep, even though he is an ex-convict and no one else would help him. The next and most powerful act of kindness and forgiveness that the bishop shows to Jean is, when he tells the police that the silver which Jean had stolen was a gift, and that he had forgotten to take his gift of candlesticks. When the bishop say's this, Jean Valjean is filled with surprise and disbelief, and did not know what to do. From that day on Jean would remember the bishop and his kindness towards him and use this memory to help others. "Les Misérables" is a wonderful film. This is without question one of the best movies I've ever watched. Right from the start, it captured my heart. It makes two hours seem like ten minutes. The story is so touching. It is not the simple tale of Jean Valjean

escaping from Inspector Javert. It is so much more. It is: a love story, the love story of France as well as a romance; a tragedy, a catalogue of the miserable citizens of historic France; a historical chronicle, a mapping out of the cultural landscape of one image of time. That movie also can teach us that the people did not always steal because they are bad people, it is just because they wanted to survive. This is the case today in America and around the world. Just because people steal is not because they are bad. Don't judge them.(Les Miserable 1978 (A movie about faith and living as a christian, 2013)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
