It's doubtful that anybody needs another glowing review of "Stand by Me". Like the "Shawshank Redemption", it's a near perfect adaptation of a Stephen King novella. In fact, both of the original stories can be found and enjoyed in his "Different Seasons" book. This is not a movie I would recommend for younger children based on the subject /5(K).
