About this movie

In 1983, director Francis Ford Coppola struck a powerful chord with his adaptation of S.E. Hinton's classic coming-of-age story featuring young talents who would go on to become major stars. Two decades later, he revisited the epic with an added 22 minutes of footage that includes a beginning and ending more true to the book and a rousing rock 'n' roll soundtrack--The Outsiders: The Complete Novel. Early 1960s. Tulsa, Oklahoma. The city is divided between teenagers who have grown up with wealth and privilege and the rough-edged "greasers" from the wrong side of the tracks. The greasers yearn for the life they see on the other side of town, but the rich kids want to keep them in their places. Then, one greaser dares cross the line to talk, and to dream of more, with a girl from across the tracks . . . an action that can only lead to conflict on a hot, steamy night.

It is beyond me why this movie does not have hundreds of five-star reviews. It is my life, I lived this very life myself. Every character in this movie, I had the same kind of person in my life. I literally read S. E Hinton's book, THE OUTSIDERS, in a Juvenile Institution. I was almost 18 years old, and had done six years of my life in institutions.

I read this book in junior high. It really spoke to me and I never forgot it. The movie really did it justice.
