A gay re-telling of Charles Dickens' classic Oliver Twist. Updated to current times, moved out of the poor house and onto the streets, the tale is told from the point of Dickens' character, Artful Dodger--now Dodge. The prosaically beautiful Oliver falls into the hands of down-and-out young men. Dodge takes the young man under his wing and instructs him in the unforgiving arts of drug abuse and prostitution. As Oliver's innocence dissolves, both young men confront inner and outer demons and, strangely, it is Dodge who finds he cannot escape his past. Written by

lonely boys trying to survive and looking for love and warmth
I've just seen this movie on the IFFRotterdam, and was impressed by the acting performance of Nick Stahl. Also the very good camerawork was a very pleasant surprise. It's quite a dark film, not only because it's a film about hustling boys, but also most of the film is shot in darker periods of the day, and i found it really well shot and well use of the diafragma of the camera. The story it's self was nothing special because it's based on Oliver Twist, but with a modern touch. The performances of the actors made it really worthwhile. Nick Stahl is a actor of a kind i expect to last long, and will be able move ahead in his career. He alone is worth viewing this film, very convincing, the way he walks, his look into the camera, his emotion when he has to do his brother....go and see it
