Popcorn Culture - Throwback Tuesday: Stand By Me

Based on Stephen King's novella, Stand By Me is many things: a classic coming-of-age adventure story, a look at childhood friendships and how they shift and change, and even a study on the weight of grief. Anchored in a group of friends hiking in the woods to find a dead body, this Rob Reiner-helmed film stars 80s icons Will Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O'Connell and Kiefer Sutherland. It's also one of Stephen King's favourites of the many, many adaptations that have been made of his work - in this episode of Throwback Tuesday, we talk about the enduring appeal of Stand By Me.
