Things That Bring Back Memories - "Stand By Me" #TTBBM

After learning that a stranger has been accidentally killed near their rural homes, four Oregon boys decide to go see the body. On the way, Gordie Lachance (Wil Wheaton), Vern Tessio (Jerry O'Connell), Chris Chambers (River Phoenix) and Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman) encounter a mean junk man and a marsh full of leeches, as they also learn more about one another and their very different home lives. Just a lark at first, the boys' adventure evolves into a defining event in their lives.


"Stand By Me is a wise, nostalgic movie with a weird streak that captures both Stephen King's voice and the trials of growing up."

"It stands, sweet and strong, ribald, outrageous and funny, like its heroes themselves -- a bit gamy around the edges, perhaps, but pure and fine clear through. It's one of those treasures absolutely not to be missed."
Los Angeles Times

"Stand by Me is a small, quiet film that walks tall and resonates long after."
Philidelphia Inquirer

"Good luck choking back the tears, folks."
Entertainment Weekly

"A classic coming of age story with outstanding performances."
Movie Mom

"An absorbing, touching examination of the loss of innocence that, despite occasionally drifting towards the sappy, undeniably deserves its place in the heart of a generation."
Empire Magazine
