Editors Note
Note Nick Stahl stars in this indie gay film as the deeply strung-out teenage Dodge, who lives in a dilapidated dormitory for hustlers, and drifts in a heroine-addicted haze through the coffee shops and darkened streets of Montreal. Reporting to an angry and abusive pimp, he is constantly afraid of being caught without a john, though that doesn't stop him from slacking off on the job. Fed up with working night after night, he stumbles upon Oliver (Joshua Close), a beautiful orphan in need of shelter, food, and work. While easing Oliver into his seedy world of prostitution and drugs, Dodge undergoes a period of self-realization. Perhaps it is the utter corruption surrounding him, or the lack of any forgiving figures in his life, but the harder Dodge tries to get a break from his cold, hard life, the worse it gets. Even a meeting with his own brother, who comes to Dodge intending to apologize for their damaging childhood and cruel father, ends in violence. A loose adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic OLIVER TWIST, this Canadian picture from Jacob Tierney is powerful in its relentlessly depressing drudgery.
Reviews
Los Angeles Times "Tierney's vision is far darker than the 19th century novelist's, but it is more in keeping with the times -- and wholly persuasive." 06/04/2004 p.E11
