After learning that a stranger has been accidentally killed near their rural homes, four Oregon boys decide to go see the body. On the way, Gordie Lachance (Wil Wheaton), Vern Tessio (Jerry O'Connell), Chris Chambers (River Phoenix) and Teddy Duchamp (Corey Feldman) encounter a mean junk man and a marsh full of leeches as they also learn more about one another and their very different home lives, all while trying to steer clear of the villainous town bully, Ace Merrill (Kiefer Sutherland). Just a lark at first, the boys' adventure evolves into a defining event in their lives.

Part of our Summer Blast! film series.

“A small, quiet film that walks tall and resonates long after.” Carrie Rickey, The Philadelphia Inquirer

“It stands, sweet and strong, ribald, outrageous and funny, like its heroes themselves — a bit gamy around the edges, perhaps, but pure and fine clear through. It’s one of those treasures absolutely not to be missed.” Sheila Benson, The Los Angeles Times
