Stand By Me is a memorable 1986 coming of age film and an adaptation of Stephen King’s The Body. Directed by Rob Reiner, starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O’Connell. I was not born in the 80s or late 70s, but I can tell that this is the type of movie kids loved growing up and consider it today a childhood classic. Surprisingly, it’s an R rated one instead of a PG-13 as one could believe.
