Synopsis

Based on the popular novel by SE Hinton, Francis Ford Coppola's film examines what causes gangs to fight. Two rival groups, the Socs and the Greasers, begin a feud when two of the Greasers become friendly with girls from the Socs side of town. The violence escalates, leading to an inevitable killing. Though the tragic storyline is familiar, The Outsiders has no shortage of originality and humour, not least of all in the characters' names, such as Ponyboy, Sodapop and Two-Bit. Many of the cast members, unknown at the time, went on to become major Hollywood stars.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
