This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Courfeyrac is knocked down during the first attack at the barricade, but Marius helps him recompose himself quickly enough to survive. This happens to Courfeyrac at Lamarque's funeral, and it is Javert who helps him up.
   At Cosette's request, Valjean gives the bucket back to her just before they reach the inn. Valjean stays for one night, giving Cosette some gifts and helping her to stay out of trouble with Madame Thénardier before offering to take her away. Valjean takes the bucket all the way to the inn and hands it to Madame Thénardier himself, then offers to take Cosette away immediately.
   Valjean spends his final moments in his apartment at Rue de l'Homme Armé, being accompanied by Marius, Cosette, a doctor and a portress. Valjean dies at the Petit-Picpus convent, with Marius and Cosette by his side.
   After a factory worker named Madame Victurnien spreads the rumour of Fantine having a child, the superintendent comes up to her one day and tells her that the Mayor has fired her. A factory worker snatches a request for money sent to Fantine by the Thénardiers, leading the others to insist that Fantine will bring trouble, convincing the foreman to throw her out.
   After getting Valjean home, Javert returns to the Seine to think, then goes to a police station to leave a note containing his final thoughts before throwing himself into the river. Javert stays by the river close to the sewer exit, jumping into the river after one final revery.
