Directed by Rob Reiner (USA 1986; 89 mins. in English)
Rob Reiner’s timeless coming-of-age film. An adaptation of Stephen King’s haunting novella, The Body, this bittersweet film follows four teenage friends (River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Wil Wheaton, and Jerry O’Connell) who set off on an adventure through rural Oregon to find the body of a missing boy. Over the course of the Labor Day weekend in 1959, the boys’ quest presents often perilous obstacles, but the true magic is in their candid conversations that bring the foursome forever closer. Its nostalgia tempered by King’s dark touch,, “Stand by Me” is a sentimental cinematic treasure that perfectly embodies wistful storytelling.
