Francis Ford Coppola’s fantastic film has finally come to blu-ray. Featuring the Brat Pack’s Rob Lowe in his role as Sodapop Curtis, The Outsiders is a timeless classic you can watch again and again. The group of young men would maintain entertainment betting odds on who would perform different questionable acts but the Greasers were basically a good bunch of lads at heart. Throughout the film you get to see a different side to these young men and exactly how heroic as well as vulnerable they can be.
While a little dark and depressing in parts, The Outsiders is a realistic portrayal of teenage gangs from that era and deservedly received four Young Artist Awards nominations. The movie hasn’t been available in the UK and this is a first blu-ray release. StudioCanal are the company behind the release of The Ousiders Collectors Edition Blu-ray.
