Director Francis Coppola's adaptation of the popular SE Hinton novel about the price of rebellious youth is notable chiefly for the stunning cast of young actors who went on to rich and varied careers. In supporting roles, the film features the likes of Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Tom Waits, among others. The story centres on two rival gangs in the early 1960s Midwest, and the violent turf wars that escalate and tragically claim young lives. C Thomas Howell plays the central character who yearns to prove himself and be accepted by his older brothers' gang, while at the same time finding his first love and dreaming of a life beyond his dead end existence. Geared toward the teenage crowd, The Outsiders nonetheless features some fine direction from Coppola in a story that evokes memories of the classic coming-of-age films of the 1950s. --Robert Lane --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

It was years later when I read the book which gave a slightly different perspective, and is also worth a read.
The Ratpack deliver a heart wrenching performance with many highs and lows, which center around the Curtis family, a poor family of "Greasers" who are rivals to the upper class "Socs". Thnigs really heat up when one of the Socs are stabbed to death my a low class Greaser and all mayhem ensues, culminating in a gang-war.
Some tears were cried during this first playing of The Outsiders for me during that eventful night in the 80's, and Im forever grateful to my sister for sticking her ground and forcing me to watch this timeless classic.
