Coppola’s inspired adaptation of SE Hinton’s classic novel captures how it feels to be caught between childhood innocence and adulthood’s disillusionment, and he assembled an impressive and talented young cast: Dillon, Cruise, Estevez, Howell, Lane, Swayze, Lowe and Macchio. Set in a divided Tulsa, where teenage life is either experienced as the ‘socs’, who go to college, have cars and a future, and the ‘greasers’, who come from the wrong side of the tracks. When a soc is knifed, three greasers go on the run before returning home to negotiate a tenuous truce. The collaborative work of the young cast serves as a testament to the Coppola’s skill as director, making their struggle engaging and unforgettable.
