This was originally a short story by Stephen King called 'The Body'.
Mr King manages, as always, to capture the thoughts and feeling of young boys. The actors portray these charachters brilliantly and effortlessly. You're drawn in immediately and , like the short story, its very captivating. Highly recommended.
this film is worth every penny. recommend it to anyone. i have watched it a number of times since got it. the cast is perfect together they have a great understanding of each other and you can see it easily. this is one of my most faviorate films ever. they just dont make them like this anymore. a brilliant coming of age film that is a must see. loved it. this is the perfect coming of age film a must see.
river phoenix had great talent and even more potential. a terrible loss
This is one of my favourite films of all time.
The story is simple but very effective. The young male actors are brilliant!
A film that is about young boys going out on their own little adventure, being there for each other, .. ''expressing'' their feelings.., and singing along the way -- are all the components for a great timeless film.
