Winner of six Academy Awards®, including Best Picture and Best Director, this exuberant film version of Lionel Bart's brilliant musical reimagining of Oliver Twist is packed with classic songs and outstanding setpieces.

Magnificently staged, performed and directed, this exuberant film version of Lionel Bart's brilliant musical reimagining of Oliver Twist is packed with classic songs ("Consider Yourself," "He Needs Me," and "I'm Reviewing The Situation," to name but three) and outstanding setpieces. Massively popular and winner of six Academy Awards® (including Best Picture and Best Director), Oliver! was a highly atypical project for celebrated director Carol Reed — who had never directed a musical previously — but is more than worthy to stand alongside his classics Odd Man Out and The Third Man.
