The Outsiders: Director’s Cut

Monday, January 31, 2011

Introduced by Michelle Tea!

It’s ’80s hunk vs. ’80s hunk when Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Emilio Estevez, Rob Lowe, and a simmering Diane Lane become players in a violent gang war between rich and poor teens in the early ’60s. Coppola’s adaptation of the classic coming of age novel – with its gang of sensitive, romantic outlaws – captivated writer Michelle Tea, who today leads her own band of punkish outsiders as the founder of the queer spoken word performance company, Sister Spit. Don’t miss this rare Director’s Cut screening, which corresponds more closely with S.E. Hinton’s book. Digital projection
