The Outsiders
The Outsiders (1983)
4 years ago via Flixster

They grew up on the outside of society. They weren't looking for a fight. They were looking to belong.
.....
The movie details a town split between the wealthy South Zone gang called 'The Socials' and the poor North Zone gang called 'The Greasers'. Dallas Winston, Ponyboy Curtis and Johnny Cade from 'The Greasers' befriend the rich Cherry Valance and Marcia at a drive-in. Later that night, a group of 'The Socs' chase and beat up Johnny and attempt to drown Ponyboy in a fountain. However, Johnny stabs one Soc and kills him, saving Ponyboy. The desperate boys seek Dallas who finds a hideout for them in a nearby town. One week later, Johnny and Ponyboy decide to return to their hometown, with Dallas, to claim the murder as self-defense. But on their way back, they see the church on fire and Ponyboy and Johnny help the children trapped in the church and become heroes. However Johnny is badly wounded and confined to the hospital. Meanwhile The Socs and The Greasers prepare to fight.

This happens to be the first book I ever read. And with most books turned into movies they seem to lose half the story and place it with something else. I didn't have to worry with this as the movie follow the book very well and didn't add anything new, which was great as it would have taking away the passion I feel for the book. There are a couple of scenes missing but nothing dramatic. They can be seen on the DVD's deleted scenes.
.....
There is top named actors in this movie, such as Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Diane Lane and Leif Garrett, who really make their characters and the movie come to life.
.....
Francis Ford Coppola did an excellent job directing the movie.

You can't win. You know that, don't you? It doesn't matter if you whip us, you'll still be where you were before, at the bottom. And we'll still be the lucky ones at the top with all the breaks. It doesn't matter. Greasers will still be Greasers and Socs will still be Socs. It doesn't matter.
