This is one of that kind of films that you catch up with and you cannot stand not seeing it. It happened to be online and I started watching it for the 6 or 7th time and couldn't stop.
The story of Oliver Twist, written by Charles Dickens, provides us a look into the society of the 19th century. As nowadays, there was rich and poor people and the city of London was an example of that. There were rich parts of the city but also poor ones.
As for the story itself it is not what we could say hard to imagine but Dickens really knew how to relate the events with reality. The two main actors of the movie Oliver (Barney Clark) and Fagin (Sir Ben Kingsley) nail their characters.
Really enjoyable, two hours of entertainment - a familiar movie.
