For tonight’s movie, Quintin suggested THE OUTSIDERS.
The movie was released March 25, 1983, when I would have been up to my ears with the last two months of my senior year of high school. It took me 29 years to see the movie, and I honestly do not recall knowing the movie, let alone the book, even existed.
I didn’t know it was a book, and Quintin said he had read the book in 7th grade, and then watched the movie. I must admit, Quinny has more of a grasp on a wider range of movies than I do. And I am impressed with how many movies he knows from when I was his age.
As the movie unfolded I kept exclaiming, “Oh my God! It’s ____!” The actors, all around my age, were just getting their careers underway. The cast line-up was exciting, and powerful!
