Polanski's Oliver Twist
I bought this version of Oliver Twist to add to my Dickens collection and really enjoyed it. It was much darker a tale than most of the other light-hearted musicals~nothing too warm and fuzzy here. But it definitely showed the horrendous conditions for the poor in Victorian England, the hypocrisy of the rich that Dickens was trying to convey and even touched on anti-semitism through Fagin's character. I recommend it if you like Dicken's.Read full review...
Enjoyable to watch.
I really would like to see a version that is true to the book. This one is not. It starts out like the book but then deviates. It uses a smaller cast of characters which forces the change in the storyline. But still overall an enjoyable movie to watch.Read full review...
See how far we have come.
This is a great movie. All my grandchildren will watch it. I hope they enjoy it , and get the message.
great new version of the old story
My seven year old son was really engaged by this movie. I know, there is the implied part where the pimp kills the prostitute that's inappropriate for a seven year old. But besides that, the movie was a great story of perseverance and redemption.Read full review...

Reviewing Oliver Twist
I purchased the movie because I seen part of it on a cable channel and was unable to finish viewing it. I had read the book however and the movie has no surprises from the book. Great book, great movie.Read full review...
