Day 310

movie: Stand By Me
starring: Corey Feldman, River Phoenix
genre: Drama
year: 1986
format: TV EDIT

plot: 4 boys learn about a dead body from their older brothers and decide to spend a few days tracking it down so they could see it.  At the same time, their brothers are on their own way to collect up the body for the reward. 

This is based on the story called "The Body"  by Stephen King from his collections Different Seasons

The story is about four boys who are all dealing with their own traumas, one is mourning the death of his brother, one is dealing with his father having had a mental breakdown, one is trying his best to improve his status and the last boy is just trying to be noticed.

It's about the bonds that we form when we're young and how even the best of intentions can lead to a not so best outcome.

what do i think i learned from this film?
Innocence is so easily lost and the purer moments are ones to hang onto.
