Rob Reiner’s 1986 adaptation of Stephen King’s novella is as fresh and moving as it was when it was first released, with a charm and depth that seems to resonate with each generation.

It is Labour Day weekend, 1959, and four adventurous boys set off to find a missing boy, on the outskirts of their hometown, Castle Rock, Oregon. The boys make an impressive and inseparable gang, there’s the born-leader Chris (River Phoenix), the intellectual Gordie (Wil Wheaton), the emotionally disturbed Teddy (Corey Feldman), and the chubby hanger-on Vern (Jerry O’Connell).


Kiefer Sutherland also dominates every scene he’s in playing Ace, the bleach-blonde, brutish high-school bully.

Rarely does a film capture the innocence and growing pains of young boys on their way to manhood, especially in such a rich and heartfelt way. These feelings are strengthened by the nostalgic and poignant narration by Richard Dreyfuss, voicing the grown-up Gordie.

Amid numerous misadventures the group savour what may be their last chance to be kids while the future could tear them apart.
