Wearing three hats as producer, director and actor, Estevez starred with his father Martin Sheen, Kathy Bates and Kimberly Williams in Disney's The War at Home. The film was released in late 1996. Estevez made his film debut in Tim Hunter's Tex and appeared in Francis Ford Coppola's ensemble drama The Outsiders. His first starring role was in Alex Cox's cult picture Repo Man, opposite Harry Dean Stanton. Estevez' performance as a quintessential high-school jock in John Hughes' The Breakfast Club won him widespread attention and acclaim. He went on to appear in St. Elmo's Fire before starring in his third adaptation of an S.E. Hinton book, That Was Then, This Is Now, for which he also wrote the screenplay.

Estevez made his debut as a director with Wisdom, which he also wrote and starred in. Other film credits include the 1987 hit Stakeout, co-starring Richard Dreyfuss, and the box-office success Young Guns and its sequel Young Guns II.
