Oliver Twist

Expressionistic noir photography suffuses David Lean’s Oliver Twist (1948) with a nightmarish quality, fitting its bleak, industrial setting. In Dickens’ classic tale, an orphan wends his way from cruel apprenticeship to den of thieves in search of a true home. Here Alec Guinness is the quintessential Fagin, in a controversial performance. (Excerpted from Criterion's website).

Featuring a very special appearance by film historian Ted Walch, who last visited the Rose to host the screenin of The 400 Blows.
