The plight of the characters in Victor Hugo's French classic "Les Miserables" resonates for nearly every country and generation. That may be why Claude Lelouch's film of the same name seems such a natural fit, even though it tells the tale of a man (Jean-Paul Belmondo) who befriends a family fleeing Nazi persecution.
Sunday, the film will have its premiere in Baltimore, with a wine reception sponsored by the American Jewish Congress' Maryland Chapter. The guest of honor for this benefit showing will be Tristan A.J.C.M. Fonlladosa, deputy cultural attache of the French Embassy.
The 2 p.m. screening on Sunday takes place at the Baltimore Museum of Art, Art Museum Drive at North Charles and 31st streets. Admission is $15. Call (410) 484-8863 for more information.
