Based on the acclaimed first novel by Richard Price (The Night Of), Philip Kaufman’s 1979 coming-of-age film The Wanderers follows the exploits of the eponymous Italian-American gang in the Bronx in 1963, just before the country underwent profound change.

Part comedy and part drama, the film movie an evocative and thrilling look back at a more innocent time.  The cult classic features a jukebox full of golden oldies and a young cast of up and comers including Ken Wahl (TV’s Wiseguy), Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark), and Linda Manz (Days of Heaven)!

The film’s outstanding cinematography by Michael Chapman (Taxi Driver, Raging Bull) looks better-than-ever in this release, which has been given a sterling 2K restoration.
