Movie propaganda

Academy Award-winning director Roman Polanski and writer Ronald Harwood re-imagine Charles Dickens' classic story of a young orphan boy who gets involved with a gang of pickpockets in 19th Century London.

Abandoned at an early age, Oliver Twist (Barney Clark) is forced to live in a workhouse lorded over by the awful Mr Bumble (Jeremy Swift), who cheats the boys of their meagre rations. Desperate yet determined, Oliver makes his escape to the streets of London. Penniless and alone, he is lured into a world of crime by the sinister Fagin (Sir Ben Kingsley) - the mastermind of a gang of pint-sized pickpockets. Oliver's rescue by the kindly Mr Brownlow (Edward Hardwicke) is only the beginning of a series of adventures that lead him to the promise of a better life.
