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 break-through roles, including C. Thomas Howell (E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial), Rob Lowe (‘The West Wing’, ‘Parks and Recreation’), Emilio Estevez (St. Elmo’s Fire, The Breakfast Club, Young Guns), Matt Dillon (Crash, There’s Something About Mary), Tom Cruise (Top Gun, Mission Impossible series, Jerry Maguire), Patrick Swayze (Dirty Dancing, Point Break, Ghost), Ralph Macchio (The Karate Kid, Cobra Kai), and Diane Lane (Unfaithful, Under the Tuscan Sun), who went on to superstar-calibre careers.

Created to give fans more of the action that took place in S.E. Hinton’s celebrated book, Francis Ford Coppola’s latest, definitive version of the film – THE OUTSIDERS: THE COMPLETE NOVEL – includes new music, as well as several scenes cut from the theatrical version which were reconstructed from original camera negatives.

“The Outsiders: The Complete Novel came about after meeting students over the years who repeatedly asked me why certain scenes from S.E. Hinton’s wonderful book were missing from the theatrical version. These questions reminded about my inspiration for the film — in 1980, a contingent of 12- to 14-year-old students wrote and asked me to make it. I listened to those young fans back then, and I continue to listen to young people now and believe in their opinions, so this complete film version of the novel is for them”, Coppola said when discussing the restoration.
