Synopsis

Stand by Me is a coming-of-age tale about the strength of friendships, but also tackles dark subject matter. It's a warm day in the summer when four boys decide to go out exploring near a railroad track. Soon they happen across the body of a missing boy. The four are shocked by what they see and are forced to face their loss of innocence dealing with such a harsh reality. Whatever your age, Stand by Me is a film we can all relate to.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
