Overview

This gripping and emotionally powerful adaptation of Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist, from one of British television's most exciting new screenplay writers (Sarah Phelps), breathes new life into the popular tale. On a dark and stormy winter's night in a miserable, dank room, lit only by a few candles, Oliver (William Miller) is born into a life of poverty and misfortune. Growing up in a workhouse, watching the suffering and cruelty endured by the boys at the hands of his masters, Oliver decides he wants more and sets out for London. There he meets the Artful Dodger (Adam Arnold), Nancy (Sophie Okonedo), Fagin (Timothy Spall), and the boys and gets the first warm welcome of his life -- unaware that this kindness requires its own type of payment to be collected by the evil Bill Sykes (Tom Hardy). A chance meeting with Mr. Brownlow (Edward Fox) and Rose (Morven Christie) sees Oliver's fortunes change. But there are those unknown to Oliver determined to ruin and destroy his life, Oliver Twist originally aired in 2007 on BBC1 in the U.K., and came to the U.S. through PBS's Masterpiece Classic series.

    Do NOT Waste your money

    I purchased this item at a BN store while on a business trip in Denver back in May. I gave it as a Xmas gift to my wife and when we sat down to watch we were completely frustrated. EVERY DVD freezes and skips and it is IMPOSSIBLE to watch any movie. I have since found out that many other people had the same issue. Apparently the product either has manufacturing defects or the packaging damages the DVDs. Since I bought the item in Dever and live near Boston I contacted BN to try to arrange for a return but because it has been over 14 days they will not accept my return even though they know this product is defective. Now I have a $100.00 set of 10 DVDs that I cannot watch. My advice is...go to Amazon and purchase the movies seperately....it will be a little more expensive but at least you can watch the movies. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
