MWG: The Outsiders (1983)
For this month Movie Watching – I have chosen the movie based on my favorite book when I was growing up.
Francis Ford Coppola‘s drama about teen turmoil in rural Oklahoma features nearly every big name of 1980s cinema — including Tom Cruise, Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez, C. Thomas Howell, Diane Lane, Ralph Macchio and Patrick Swayze. In this faithful adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s popular novel, the hardscrabble “Greasers” face off against the affluent “Socs,” and the resulting conflict proves sad and deadly for these ultimately lovable delinquents.
