Stand By Me (1986) is a drama based on the novella by Stephen King and directed by Rob Reiner about a group of four boys: Gordie (Wil Wheaton), Chris (River Phoenix), Teddy (Corey Feldman) and Vern (Jerry O’Connell), who set out on a two day journey to find the body of a missing boy.
Everyone needs someone to believe in them.
Gordie: “I’m no good. My dad said it; I’m no good.”
Chris: “He doesn’t know you.”
Gordie: “He hates me.”
Chris: “He doesn’t hate you.”
Gordie: “He hates me … My dad hates me. I’m no good.”
Chris: “No! He just doesn’t know you … You’re gonna be a great writer someday Gordie. You might even write about us guys, if you ever get hard up for material.”
