Les Miserables

Les Miserables is one of the most captivating plays of our
lifetime! It grabs the audience and pulls you in head first.
You can't take out eyes off of the stage, and even if you can,
the music will take your breath away! I have seen the play 3
times and I don't think I enjoy anything in this world more
than watching that play!
Les Miserables starts off on a chain gang in France. The
sheriff comes out and gives one of the convicts his release
papers. This convict is the lead role who name is Jeran
Valjean, who has served 19 years on the chain gang for
stealing a mouthful of bread. Jean Valjean leaves the prison
and sets out to find work. But no one will give him work
because of his tattoo which reads 24601, his prison ID number.
Then in the time when he couldn't be more down a priest
invites Valjean to stay with him. Despite the kind priest taking
him in and feeding him, Valjean decides to take the silver from
the table. In the run he gets captured be the police. But
instead of telling the truth about Valjeans thievery, he gives
the criminal more silver and sends the police away. He makes
Jean Valjean promise that he will become an honest man with
this silver.
The next scene in 10 years later set in a factory where we
meat the other main character, Fantine. As she is reading a
letter her perverted boss snatches it up with his hands and
reads it aloud. Fantine has a daughter that lives with an
innkeeper and his wife who are the only ones in this whole
play that give some comedy relief. They treat her daughter
horribly and when the boss finds out that she has a daughter
he thinks of her as a prostitute and kicks her out of the
factory, which is in the town in which the new honest Valjean
is the mayor. To support her child Fantine sells her chain and
her locks of hair. Then later because she can't find work
becomes a prostitute.
Later a respected person in the community felt an itch
for a poke at a female and went to Fantine. Fantine realizes
that day that she can no longer be a prostitute because of her
morals and refuses. The man beats her and when Fantine
fights back he drags her to the police. As the police are taking
her away Jean Valjean, the mayor, comes in the stops them.

    Film Noir Forty years after Raymond Borde and Étienne Chaumeton defined the challenge, critical commentators on film noir continue to grapple with it. Ironically, American writers did not immediately take up consideration of this indigenous phenomenon and the question of its "essential traits." Only gradually in a frequently cross-referenced series of essays in the 1970s did they begin to express themselves. There are now a dozen full-length books in English concerning film noir and undoubtedly
  • Dominican music and film
    Dominican music and film The Caribbean island nation of the Dominican Republic is little known by most Americans, but America is ever present in the Dominican consciousness. Until Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire went head to head in the legendary homerun battle of 1998, few Americans were aware of any American-Dominican rivalry in western hemispheric culture. Nothing gave Dominicans more pride than to see Sosa hold Major League Baseballs homerun record, albeit for less than 24 hours before McGuire

No other language or nation had ever used these words before; men had always thought of wealth as a static quantity- to be seized, begged, inherited, shared, looted or obtained as a favor. Americans were the first to understand that wealth has to be created." Ayn Rand People have always been inte
