Europe Loves - Oliver Twist

Dir: Roman Polanski



131 mins



Barney Clark, Ben Kingsley, Jeremy Swift

Roman Polanski’s vital adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens novel Oliver Twist follows a charming orphan boy (Barney Clark) whose life seems to depend solely on the whims of fate.

Abandoned early in life, Oliver seems doomed to life in the workhouse, where he’s farmed out to a local undertaker and regularly mistreated and underfed.

Hoping to improve his lot in life, he runs away to London, where he falls in with a gang of petty criminals led by Fagin (Ben Kingsley) and a young pickpocket, the Artful Dodger (Harry Eden).

Oliver’s new life seems happier, until he meets Mr. Brownlow (Edward Hardwicke), who sees Oliver’s true character and potential and seems determined to sway destiny.
