Stand By Me

Dir: Rob Reiner
Cast: Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman
89mins   1986   USA   15   English   

It's the summer of 1959 in Castlerock, Oregon and four 12 year-old boys - Gordie, Chris, Teddy and Vern - are fast friends. After learning of the general location of the body of a local boy who has been missing for several days, they set off into woods to see it. Along the way, they learn about themselves, the meaning of friendship and the need to stand up for what is right.

This is as fresh and moving as it was when it was first released. Superbly acted...the classic of its genre. - Emma Cochrane, Empire
