Poor little Oliver Twist just can't seem to get out of London's seedier sides. But while he is down in the dumps, Charles Dickens' famous orphan might as well express himself... with song. Oliver! takes the classic tale and sets it to music, letting all the characters, from the undertaker to Fagin, put in a few notes here and there. This classic 1968 adaptation lets the story spring with energy and emotion without being held down by the constraints of dialogue. Expressive, inspiring and ultimately entertaining, Oliver! is a must for both kids and parents.
