Academy Award® winner Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather trilogy) directs this unforgettable story of a young man's struggle to live up to his adored brother's reputation in an impoverished industrial town. Matt Dillon (Wild Things) and Mickey Rourke (Barfly) are Rusty James and The Motorcycle Boy, and lead an all-star cast including Nicolas Cage (Adaptation), Dennis Hopper (Speed) and Diane Lane (Under the Tuscan Sun). This extraordinary adaptation of the best-seller by S.E. Hinton features a Golden Globe®-winning score by Stewart Copeland of The Police, and reminds us that if you're going to lead people, you have to have somewhere to go.
