In 1983, long before they were big movie stars – Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, C Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez and Tom Cruise – all acted together in a movie. Its one of the better movies I’ve seen. Loved it. It was based on a book by S.E. Hilton. And was directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
And yet , despite all that, in my limited view, it remains a under-watched – and under rated movie.
The Outsiders, is highly recommended viewing, one of these weekends.
And whats that got to do with cricket ? Nothing, apart from a little poem in the movie called Nothing Gold Can Stay.
Ok, that still doesnt have anything to do with cricket. But its watch-out-seniors day, and Brian Lara’s quit and I feel all gooey.
If you want to feel similar , read this wonderful (tho old) piece by Peter Roebuck called Fade to Grey.
