Overview
"Absolutely wonderfu...a film I may never forget!" said Jeffrey Lyons, Sneak Previes Independent Network News, about the surprise hit of 1986, STAND BY ME. In a small woodsy Oregon town, a group of friends—sensitive Gordie (Wil Wheaton), tough-guy Chris (River Phoenix), and flamboyant Teddy are in search of a missing teenager's body. Wanting to be heroes in each others' and their hometown's eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. They sneak smokes, tell tall tales, cuss 'cause it's cool, and band together when the going gets tough. When they encounter the town's knife-wielding hoods who are also after the body, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. STAND BY ME is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experiences of growing up. Filled with humor and suspense, it is based on the novella, "The Body," by Stephen King.
