1735 - Stand By Me
If you haven't seen this film it's a crying shame. It's really a lovely coming of age story that's filled with humour and heart. Four friends go in search of the body of a kid their age, rumoured dead by the train tracks a town or so over, and they decide that they want to be the ones to "find the body", but by the end of the trip they find something much more. Sounds cheesy, sure - but it's a delightful fantastic film. Rob Reiner directs the shit out of it and these actors. It's a great great film. And it's on netflix now, so you have absolutely no reason to not watch, or at least, revisit it.
