|Four youngsters go on an adventure to search for a dead boy in the summer of 1959. Walking the train tracks by day and camping out in the woods by night, they encounter a rebellious teenage gang who intend to thwart their efforts.|
Based on Stephen King's novella, The Body, the coming-of-age story is very close to the author's original vision. For those who love DVD audio commentaries, you should check out director Reiner's on the disc - it's one of the very best out there: a scene-by-scene informative chat track with lots of trivia and interesting on-set stories to keep you entertained. The DVD also comes with a 40 minute making of featurette as well.
It's simply one of those movies you must see before you die.
