The Outsiders

Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of S.E. Hinton's coming-of-age novel (written by Hinton when he was just 16). An array of before-they-were-famous actors - including Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe and Emilio Estevez - play working class toughs with fantastic names like Ponyboy, Dallas, Two-Bit and Sodapop. Story follows two rival gangs in 1960s Oklahoma - the Greasers and the Socs. When they clash, the fracas ends with a dead Soc setting off a turbulent chain of events.

Coppola re-released the film in 2005 with about 20 minutes of additional footage and new music.

[Coppola's] revisions to the film, which include a new, improved soundtrack, invest it with grandeur worthy of both its characters and his own ambitions.

There's not much life in this movie, or spontaneity. It's a stylistic exercise.
