As the Kansas City area settles into a new school year, the Library devotes its September film series to stories of some of the big screen’s more famously disaffected students – the loners, the misunderstood, the (ultimately redeemable) troublemakers.

This title is Rated R and is recommended for adult audiences only.

In the Stanley H. Durwood Film Vault, Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
