Into her life comes Harvard psychologist Robert Coles. Together, they overcome the threatening crowds, earning them both a place in history and a life-long friend in each other. Guided by the strength and love of her parents and protected by federal marshals, this young girl would show grace and dignity as she endured jeers, threats and insults while making her way up the step of the school.

Rumble fish( Visual )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this deeply personal tale of estrangement and reconciliation between two rebellious brothers, set in a dreamlike and timeless Tulsa, Francis Ford Coppola gives mythic dimensions to intimate, painful emotions. The director's "art film for teenagers" was his second adaptation of young-adult novelist S.E. Hinton's work in a single year, after the more classically styled The Outsiders. Graced with a remarkable cast headed by Matt Dillon, Mickey Rourke, and Diane Lane; haunting black-and-white visuals that hark back to German expressionism and forward to Coppola's own Tetra; and a powerful percussive score by Stewart Copeland that underlines the movie's romantic fatalism, Rumble Fish pulsates with genuine love and dread"--Container
