What can I say? Don't want to spoil everything for the readers but this one's a must have. If you want a story that will keep you turning the pages, this is it.

It’s not quite Dickens’ classic novel, but then again, I ask you; what is? “Oliver Twist” is a brilliant film despite the fact that the story is not quite the way old Charles Dickens wrote it. When viewing this film one must remember that it was meant to appeal to a great number of people and not just to those who love literature. It was also meant to be a family film, which is why it is not as dreary or complicated as the original novel was. One must also remember too, that this film was originally created for television. ~*~ The cast is great, especially Elijah Wood who played the Artful Dodger and Antoine Byrne who played Nancy. The young boy who played Oliver could have been a little better prepared for the part, but still he did a wonderful job. I have also never seen anyone portray Fagin in such an amusing manner as Richard Dreyfuss. ~*~ Overall the film is fun as well as funny and is sure to be an enjoyment to the entire family. For those who want to see a film that is based more closely to the novel I would suggest trying another version.

It's good because it has a good story to it for all ages. (And it has Elijah Wood in it!)
