Goofs:
Anachronisms: Rose sings and plays the hymn "Abide With Me". The words were not written until 1847, and the tune wasn't published until 1861, in the classic "Hymns Ancient and Modern". This song did not exist at the time Oliver Twist takes place.See more »

This is what I want from a period piece!, 16 March 2010
Author: kateruggles from Edgware, Middlesex, UK

I'm surprised that this adaptation of the Dickens classic has received so many negative reviews and that there are comparisons with the musical which is a whole different type of production. All the performances are very strong, although I think that the Artful Dodger could do with a few more acting lessons. I thought that Tom Hardy, Sophie Okonedo and Timothy Spall were particularly outstanding. Viewers seem to expect the characters to be fairly one-dimensional and stereotyped - just because Bill Sykes is a psychopath doesn't mean he has to yell all the time! I think that the director did a good job of portraying the harshness and grime of Victorian London and the cruelty and depravity of the era also. I don't want to see Dickens adaptations through a soft focus lens, this is what I want from a period piece. I do agree about the randomness of the music though.
