After the death of a friend, a writer recounts a boyhood journey to find the body of a missing boy.
Stand by Me is a 1986 American coming-of-age drama film directed by Rob Reiner and starring Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, and Jerry O’Connell. The film, whose plot is based on Stephen King’s novella ‘The Body’ and title is derived from Ben E. King’s eponymous song, which plays over the ending credits, tells the story of four boys in a small town in Oregon who go on a hike to find the dead body of a missing child.
