It’s been 50 years since the first publication of The Outsiders, a small novel that rocked the publishing industry and arguably set the stage for the YA genre as a whole. Susan Eloise Hinton was an Oklahoma teenager (who had just failed a creative writing class) when she wrote her first novel. It describes a gang of lost boys who form their own family as they face off against rival gang the Socs. Hinton was only 18 when the novel was released, and it has sold millions of copies since then and is still required reading in many schools. Cementing the novel’s legendary status was its 1983 film adaptation by Francis Ford Coppola, starring the brightest young stars of the day, like Matt Dillon, Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Ralph Macchio, Diane Lane, and a young Tom Cruise at the start of his career. Read More: // here

The Berlin Film Festival is just getting underway in the German capital, but buyers and sellers are already on the ground with most arriving late Wednesday to adjust to the freezing temperatures and, hopefully, warm up to deals. The weather can be counted on to be icy — the heat of the deals is another matter. As we reported earlier today, the independent sector is in uncharted waters as big new players muscle in, ready to splash out on worldwide rights from their very deep streaming-fueled pockets.
