There are particular motion pictures based mostly on King books that ought to by no means be remade, and The Shawshank Redemption is the primary that instantly springs to thoughts together with The Inexperienced Mile. One other is 1986 coming-of-age traditional Stand by Me, which is broadly thought to be one of many best interpretations of the author’s in depth again catalogue.
The film gained the Golden Globe for Greatest Movement Image – Drama and Rob Reiner picked up the Greatest Director trophy on the identical ceremony, however Stand by Me was solely nominated for a sole Academy Award within the Greatest Tailored Screenplay class regardless of being lauded as one of many 12 months’s greatest titles. The younger forged together with River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Wil Wheaton and Jerry O’Connell are phenomenal throughout the board in a riveting story filled with iconic moments.
