Other Notes: I read The Outsiders I think in middle school, and my favorite thing about the book was that it was written by a 15-year-old girl. S. E. Hinton actually played one of the nurses in the film. The movie turned 35 last year and has all of the babyfaces: Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Ralph Macchio, Tom Cruise, Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, Diane Lane, and a very young Sofia Coppola. The big question remains: why were all of those schoolchildren randomly visiting that old church?? I can’t remember what the book had to say about that. If you know, please enlighten me in the comments.
