The surprising and moving little Danish film "Twist and Shout" (Cineplex) is set in and around Copenhagen in 1964. Part of its plot springs from that year's great, worldwide media explosion: the Beatles. It's somehow sparkling and warming to see that Denmark was conquered just as America was--that Scandinavian hearts beat as strongly to the drums and ecstatic screams on "She Loves You--Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!"

Whenever Hollywood's newest young Turks talk about one another, Emilio Estevez's name invariably crops up. "Emilio just wrote and starred in his own movie," someone might confide in admiring tones. ("That Was Then, This Is Now," based on the S. E. Hinton novel). "He's re-e-e-a-a-l-ly hot ." Just what kind of cinematic Wunderkind is this 22-year-old actor, whose most recent performance in "The Breakfast Club" has drawn so much critical praise?

WHEN Francis Ford Coppola headed for Tulsa, Okla., in the early 1980s to film S.E. Hinton's "The Outsiders," a novel about alienated teenagers and class conflict, it came at a time in his career that he now likens to being an oil tycoon who'd lost everything. "If you were a wildcat in the oil business and you made a lot of money, then lost all your money, you'd go back to digging the hole," he said this summer, during a brief visit to New York.

Trace Cyrus, singer/guitarist of the emo-electro band Metro Station, has the words "Stay Gold" tattooed across the knuckles of both hands. It's from S.E. Hinton's young-adult novel "The Outsiders," a noirish and broken-hearted tale of teenage gang life canonical among tweens making their first rebellions and self-explorations through art. It's a natural tattoo for the band's 18-year-old frontman, one of many that cover his forearms and androgynously skinny chest.

Though it was not his first film or even his breakthrough -- he'd already had that three years earlier with "Dirty Dancing" -- my favorite memory of Patrick Swayze came in 1990 with the romantic thriller "Ghost" with Demi Moore: He played a man whose love was so strong that, despite being gunned down in the street, he refused to leave this life until he knew she was safe. Like countless other women around the country, I suddenly wanted to buy a potter's wheel, slip into a guy's oversized white shirt and work with clay, the Righteous Brothers' "Unchained Melody" playing in the background.
