Outsiders, The (DVD)
Academy Award-winning director Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather films) directs an all-star cast in the big-screen adaptation S.E. Hinton's classic coming-of-age novel The Outsiders. 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.]]>
Director Francis Coppola's adaptation of the popular S.E. Hinton novel about the price of rebellious youth is notable chiefly for the stunning cast of young actors who went on to rich and varied careers. In supporting roles, the film features the likes of Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Diane Lane, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, and Tom Waits, among others. The story centers on two rival gangs in the early 1960s Midwest, and the violent turf wars that escalate and tragically claim young lives. C. Thomas Howell plays the central character who yearns to prove himself and be accepted by his older brothers' gang, while at the same time finding his first love and dreaming of a life beyond his dead end existence. Geared toward the teenage crowd, the film nonetheless features some fine direction from Coppola in a story that evokes memories of the classic coming-of-age films of the 1950s. --Robert Lane

My uncle was burned when he was young and had a rough life afterwards.
He recently passed away in early October of 2015 after a battle with substance abuse.
A couple of days before he passed I called him and caught up with him (he lived down the road but I never really saw him, busy life, blah blah blah), I could tell he was out of it and not doing well.
When we were getting off the phone he said "Stay gold, ponyboy" and I didn't get the reference and he hung up.
That was the last thing he ever said to me.
After he died, I googled that quote and saw it was from this movie and my grandma told me it was one of his favorites so I ordered it and watched it.
When Johnny said "Stay Gold, Ponyboy" to him right before he died from his burns I lost it.
I felt such a loss for my uncle I was never really close to. He was my Godfather and uncle but I never really, really knew him, but I did know that my uncle LOVED sunsets just like Ponyboy.
I am so happy I watched this movie.
