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
Sujit R. Varma
At the end of the film, Dodge pays a visit to Bill's place. His face is ravaged from the mugging of the previous evening. When he comes out of the house, his face shows no signs of the damage that was present when he entered the house. See more »

Get outta my bed, blondie.
No, I thought you could sleep in the bed tonight.
You don't mind sleepin' on the coach?
No, I thought we could both sleep in the bed.
It's big enough.
I just don't wanna sleep by myself tonight.
It's not gonna happen. It's a bad idea. Trust me. Go, get in bed; go to sleep; I'll see ya in the morning.
I'm glad you were with me tonight. Thanks.

I would say that most people are not aware of and are very naiive about street life, and that that might influence their perceptions of this movie. I enjoyed it and thought it touched on a lot of issues that very rarely get touched on, and thought that while some portions were a little overdrawn, overall it was a very moving pieve of film that had a lot of truth embedded in it.
I would say that the people here that say that they have seen "too many movies about hustling" have probably never had the experience themselves. One cinematic exploration is surely enough for them, I suppose.
However, if you have not been exposed to "too many" hustler movies already, I would encourage you to check it out.
The acting is superb and I especially liked Joshua Close.
