USA | 1986 | 89 mins | Dir. Rob Reiner
Rob Reiner pretty much wrote the book on coming-of-age films with this superior slice of nostalgia about four inseparable friends, who go out in search of a dead body.
Based on Stephen Kings short story The Body, Stand By Me sees Richard Dreyfusss author Gordie Lachance reminisce about his childhood adventure when he (played by Wil Wheaton) and his friends, rebel Chris (River Phoenix), disturbed geek Teddy (Corey Feldman, The Goonies) and tubby hanger-on Vern (Jerry OConnell, Jerry Maguire), attempted to make names for themselves by discovering the corpse before a gang of local thugs (led by Kiefer Sutherland) do.
