About Empire Retro Movie: Stand By Me

In a small woodsy Oregon town, a group of friends – sensitive Gordie, tough guy Chris, flamboyant Teddy, and scaredy-cat Vern – are in search of a missing teenager’s body. Wanting to be heroes in each other’s and their hometown’s eyes, they set out on an unforgettable two-day trek that turns into an odyssey of self-discovery. They sneak smokes, tell tall tales, cuss ’cause it’s cool and band together when the going gets tough. When they encounter the town’s knife-wielding hoods who are also after the body, the boys discover a strength they never knew they had. STAND BY ME is a rare and special film about friendship and the indelible experiences of growing up. Filled with humour and suspense, STAND BY ME is based on the novella ‘The Body’ by Stephen King.
