to me the saddest part of the end of les mis is this exact moment:
when you realize that the barricade boys’ heaven is a world where everyone stood up and fought with them and where they weren’t the only ones sitting on their side of the barricade
where no one abandoned them to die
Actually I always thought the saddest thing was the other side of the barricade. It’s empty.
They’re not fighting anyone.
Because though the Les Amis wanted social change and revolution, they never wanted to hurt anyone. Enjolras cried when he was forced to shoot a solider reloading the cannon. They had guns and barricades because of the state of society; they knew revolution had to come with bloodshed.
But here, in heaven, in their perfect world, it doesn’t. The barricade is symbolic. There’s no fighting. It’s just everyone rising up together to change the world peacefully.
Tom Hooper has said that Marius looks up in this scene because he can hear the choir singing. Essentially, half of him is there with Cosette, and half of him is in the afterlife with his friends.
do you ever get angry because we got a brand new song in the les misèrables movie but we didn’t get all of drink with me
#shout out to aaron tveit for knowing to play enjolras with intensity and anger and regality #shout out to aaron tveit for deciding to make him vulnerable #shout out to aaron tveit for agreeing to play enjolras even though everyone kNOWS the critics never give two fucks about enjolras and #still deciding to play him with enough complexity and reality to make everyone #fall in love with him #totally used regality on purpose ahaha enjolras is turning in his grave #look at that academy award winning hair #aint it fly
