That Was Then,
This Is Now

S. E. Hinton on the book

I wasn't involved in the filming of That Was Then. Emilio Estevez and Craig Sheffer were very good as Mark and Byron, and there are many things about the movie - the writing, all the performances - that I like.

I knew Hollywood wouldn't be brave enough to handle the ending, and I was right!

Still a pretty good movie, though.
