I have just watched Stand By Me which is a film directed by Rob Reiner It is about four boys who decide to go and find a dead body so that they can tell the police about it and in turn be famous The boys are called Gordie Lachance Chris Chambers Teddy Duchamp and Vern Tessio On the way they encounter many adventures such as running from a train and sticking up for themselves with a gun In this essay I will discuss how the filmmakers make the film interesting and enjoyable Gordie Chris Teddy and Vern are best friends When Vern overhears his brother and his friend talking about the dead body they have found the four boys decide to go and look for it so that they can become famous During the journey they meet many challenges which test their friendship like escaping from the Junkman and his dreaded dog Chopper When they get to where the dead body is after much decision they decide to phone the police anonymously But when they get up to leave Verns brother and his friends confront them They want the body themselves so they can become famous The younger boys end up standing up for themselves by threatening Ace and his friends with a gun Gordie Lachance who is played by Wil Wheaton is quite imaginative as he tells his friends stories throughout this film He also likes to write stories Gordie is also quite brave and sensible We know this because he stood up for himself and his friends with a gun but was not actually stupid enough to shoot Ace He is also very good at giving advice as he gives Chris plenty during this film For example when Chris is feeling down because he believed that his future was inevitable for him and that he would never get out of the small town he grew up in Gordie encouraged him
