I was stuck for a bit on this theme and had a few that might have worked for me. The Prince of Tides (except for that Barbra Streisand thing); Atonement (but I never actually READ the book Atonement but loved the movie) …Angela’s Ashes (too depressing) … and then I hit on it …. a book I love, a movie I love, and a movie that I felt was true TO the book. Plus it is Oklahoma (go figure) …. Francis Ford Coppola’s movie, THE OUTSIDERS.
All those star-boys before they were stars. SIGH! But the story – Soc’s (pronounced sosh but stood for “socialites”) and greasers … and is Diane Lane any older now? I swear she looks exactly the same.
Come on now, chime in, who was your favorite Outsiders guy? Matt Dillon (Dallas) or Ponyboy? Sodapop? I gotta go Dallas.
Happy MCW, I’ll be around sometime Wednesday to comment!
