Very good, especially if you like the movie!
10 June 2014 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this documentary for numerous reasons. For one thing, I love "Stand By Me", so I was interested in hearing Stephen King's thoughts on his story and the experiences he had as a kid. I came across it on YouTube where the whole video is up (divided into four parts), in case you don't have the Special Edition DVD. It was so fascinating, especially if you watch it after viewing the film.

You get to hear what it was like making the movie from casting to the direction of it and it really gets me tear-eyed and nostalgic just watching the beginning of it. Towards the end of it, I liked how they had a memorial section on River Phoenix where everyone who was interviewed discussed his talent and why he'll be missed, while saying positive things about him. If you like the movie "Stand By Me" and want to learn more about the "behind the scenes" perspective on it, it is amazing!
