STAND BY ME
1986, Sony Repertory, 89 min, Dir: Rob Reiner

One of the most classic and quotable coming-of-age films ever made, Rob Reiner's adaptation of Stephen King's "The Body" is at once hilarious and heartbreaking, and a spot-on time capsule of small-town America in the 1950s. Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O'Connell star as friends on the precipice of junior high school, enjoying a summer of small-fry hijinks. When they go looking for the body of a boy presumed dead from a train accident, they must come to terms with the difficult changes the future holds.
