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.

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

You cannot help but get sucked into this film... Beautifully acted, exquisitely filmed. Throughout the film, you want to jump on the screen and rescue Oliver. The audience at the Toronto International Film gasped in unison throughout the film...
A fantastic adaptation of Dickens' masterpiece; who knew that today's Toronto could be as darkly sinister as Dickens' London?
