Stand by Me

Stand by Me ★★★★

"I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?"

Balancing the beautiful nostalgia and properly hilarious tones almost perfectly, what a terrifically moving film about youth and friendship. For such a young cast I was so impressed how they seemingly understood how time affects and ultimately ends everything, they were all wise well beyond their years.

It made me miss those memories with mates back when we didn't know any better. It made me miss those mates I'd dearly love to not know any better with all over again.
