A tale about two young boys, Prosper and Bo, who flee to Venice after being orphaned and dumped in the care of a cruel auntie. Hiding in the canals and alleyways of the city, the boys are befriended by a gang of young urchins and their enigmatic leader, the Thief Lord. From their home base of an old cinema theater, the children steal from the rich to support themselves and soon capture the interest of a bumbling detective. However, a greater threat to the children is something from a forgotten past-- a beautiful magical treasure with the power to spin time itself. Written by
Kasey and Toby
Director Richard Claus cast Aaron Johnson as Prosper early in the production process and that Aaron showed dedication to the role, holding on through the long months assembling finance, able to fit in months work on HBO's "Rome" series under the direction of Micheal Apted, before joining the rest of the cast in Venice in mid September 2004. Although Aaron did not appear in "Rome" (which aired from 8/28/2005 to 3/25/2007), he did appear in the last three of six 2-hour episodes of the BBC adaptation of "Feather Boy" directed by Dermot Boyd all six of which aired in March and April, 2004.

When I was about 9 or 10, I read the book. I loved it, and it deepened my love for the city of Venice. The movie is about two boys, Pop and Bo, who get separated when their mother dies: 6 year old Bo has to live with his terrible aunt and uncle, 15 year old Pop ends up in an orphanage. The decide to run away to Venice, a city their mother had always loved. Without money or home, they meet the 16 year old Lord of the Thiefs and get to live with him and his gang of orphans, and get a dangerous mission to steal a wooden wing...
The actors were well chosen and played even due to their young age very well, the pictures of Venice are beautiful and the music was thoroughly fitting. Only 9 stars, because notable changes were made from the book, though it wasn't too tragic.
