In 1983, Francis Ford Coppola created the film version of S.E. Hinton’s book The Outsiders. In the movie and the book, the story takes place in a town where people are segregated by where they live. People on the east side were called greasers, and people on the west side were referred to as the socs. The main character remains the same in both the movie and the novel; his name is Ponyboy.

My final is about the difference between the book and the movie “The Outsiders.” This next paragraph is about the description difference between the book and movie.

The movie also missed critical events and that the author has included in her book, including Sandy, Ponyboy ’s talk with Cherry Valance about sunsets, the streetlight in which Dally died, the hearing of Ponyboy’s fate at court, and Sodapop’s horse Mickey Mouse.
