             After viewing the movie "The Outsiders- I will discuss character development. In this part of the analysis I will give some information about the subjects of the book, and about the author. The author wrote the story when she was just 16 years old, in the 1950s. The book was successful, and it was sold in many copies as a young adults novel. This movie made about it. The Outsiders is about a gang. They live in a city in Oklahoma. Ponyboy Curtis, a 14 year old greaser, tells the story. Other characters include Sodapop and Darry, Ponyboy's brothers, Johnny, Dallas, and Two-Bit, that were also gang members and Ponyboy's friends. This story deals with two forms of social classes: the socs, the rich kids, and the greasers, the poor kids. The socs go around looking for trouble and greasers to beat up, and then the greasers are blamed for it, because they are poor and cannot affect the authorities.
             It was clear and simple, and the events have occurred in a reasonable order. The ending of the story was a bit expected. I anticipated the death of Johnny because a broken neck usually means death. The death of Dally was not as predictable as Johnny's death because it was said that. I did not think that such a tough person would get himself killed because of a death of a friend, although it was said a short time before the death of Dally that: "Johnny was the only thing Dally loved."" The climaxes at the end of the story were the deaths of Johnny and Dally. To conclude I can say that the plot development was simple and easy to understand and to follow. The movie was organized in a way that fits the actual content of the plot. .
             Character Development The characters in the movie were not very heroic " they were just humans "it was easy to believe that this is the way they should be. The characters in the plot give the reader a feeling this can be a true story. The movie has created the personality of the characters through the descriptions of Ponyboy "the narrator "and through their actions.
