From Page to Screen: The Outsiders
January 26, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm CST
Searching the Psyche Through Cinema
The month’s second Searching the Psyche Through Cinema installment features Francis Ford Coppola’s classic look at life on the outside, The Outsiders (1983; PG; 91 min.). Set in 1950s Tulsa, Oklahoma, it follows the conflict between a group of working-class teens known as the Greasers and the rich-kid Socs (pronounced soches, short for socials).
The film is based on the book by S.E. Hinton, written when she was a teen and angry about how the Socs treated greasers in her high school. The post-screening discussion is led by psychoanalyst Manuel Morales and film critic Abby Olcese. Reception to follow.
Presented in partnership with the Greater Kansas City and Topeka Psychoanalytic Center.
