As well as young John Howard Davies' appealing turn as the eponymous hero, the cast also features Alec Guinness giving a marvellous turn as Fagin, with a youthful Anthony Newley as the Artful Dodger and Robert Newton playing bad-to-the-bone Bill Sikes with aplomb.

Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal give first-rate performances alongside Michelle Williams and Anne Hathaway

KM 31 2005 A woman telepathically senses when her identical twin sister is run over on a lonely stretch of road and rushes off to the rescue.
