The Wanderers

Edition 1980
112' - 1979 - Crime, Drama, Romance - Dialogue: Italian, English
Director: Philip Kaufman With: Ken Wahl, Karen Allen, John Friedrich
The Bronx, 1963. With the radio stations playing The Four Seasons, Lee Dorsey, The Angels, and Ben E. King, Richie Gennaro and The Wanderers, a band of Italian-American greasers, meander through the city's streets, fall in love, and get into trouble. However, graduation day is fast approaching, and whether the Wanderers like it or not, violence is the only way to resolve differences at school and the street. But do the reckless Wanderers know that their carefree days as a gang are numbered?
