Description

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.

A teen gang in rural Oklahoma, the Greasers are perpetually at odds with the Socials, a rival group. When Greasers Ponyboy (C. Thomas Howell) and Johnny (Ralph Macchio) get into a brawl that ends in the death of a Social member, the boys are forced to go into hiding. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with the intense Dallas (Matt Dillon) and their other Greaser buddies, must contend with the consequences of their violent lives. While some Greasers try to achieve redemption, others meet tragic ends.
