Storyline

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

Great Film - Dark and Powerful
17 August 2004 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the film. Although the production was not up to par the film was done well. The acting was incredible, Nick Stahl has gone up in my opinion and the way the darkness of the story was told without being in your face about it was re-freshing.

The music at the end of the movie was incredible and I can't wait until the soundtrack comes out.

Does anyone know of any the artist that perform the music in the movie?

I do not understand why some people do not like the picture. From a story book perspective I do believe that the movie measures up to Private Idaho, although I would put the production quality at a lower level.
