Following The Outsiders, Francis Ford Coppola adapts another of SE Hinton's tales of adolescent angst to put another generation of teenage rebels on the road to stardom. Mickey Rourke broods Brando-style is the leather-clad loner who returns to the city to find his kid brother (Matt Dillon) wrapped up in the gang lifestyle. Dennis Hopper plays their deadbeat father, while Diane Lane, Larry Fishburne and Nicolas Cage are also caught up in the urban strife. With a screenplay from Hinton herself, this is a cool story of disaffected youth, shot through in monochrome style.
