Based on the 1967 best-selling young-adult novel by S. E. Hinton, The Outsiders is considered the first "brat pack" movie, as it stars then-unknown young actors in many of their first breakthrough roles, including C. Thomas Howell, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, Ralph Macchio, and Diane Lane, who went on to superstar-calibre careers.

“…considered the first brat pack movie”

The Outsiders takes place in '60s Oklahoma, centring on two rival teen gangs: the Greasers, a class term that refers to the young men on the East side, the poor side of town, and the Socs, short for Socials, who are the "West-side rich kids”. Ponyboy (Howell), a tender-hearted and kind teenager’s life is changed forever one night when a scuffle with his friend Johnny (Macchio) inadvertently leads to the death of a rival gang member, and the boys are forced to go into hiding to avoid arrest. Soon Ponyboy and Johnny, along with Dallas (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.

Stay gold Ponyboy forever…
