In the Bronx, in 1963, all that mattered was the name on your jacket. The Wanderers, led by heart throb Richie (Ken Wahl - TV's Wiseguy), are just one of the gangs fighting for turf in this darkly comic re-imagining of the golden age of American innocence. Love, loyalty and pretty girls keep The Wanderers busy while they fend off The Baldies, The Duckie Boys and The Del Roys - and struggle to keep their crew together...no matter what.

Like West Side Story without the ballet slippers and American Graffiti without all the white folk, The Wanderers digs deep into 60's New York cool and delivers all the car fins, hair gel and be-bop your heart could desire.

A cult classic directed by Academy Award nominee Philip Kaufman (The Right Stuff, The Uunbearable Lightness of Being), and written by Academy Award nominee Richard Price (The Colour of Money, Clockers).

Featuring a superb soundtrack full of sixties rock 'n' roll hits.
