Francis Ford Coppola’s classic 1983 coming-of-age drama The Outsiders is given a new 4K restoration re-titled The Outsiders: The Complete Novel. It’s the story of young men growing up where they have little going for them, with two opposing groups, the Greasers and the Socs, continually fight against each other. This version is designed to allow fans of the original film to see more of the world created in S.E. Hinton’s original novel and includes new music and several cut scenes which didn’t make the film’s final version.
This screening will include an 11 minute introduction, recorded exclusively for cinemas, from Francis Ford Coppola. It’s an insight into Coppola’s decision to restore and extend the film into a faithful adaptation of S.E. Hinton’s original novel.
