Stand By Me  This film was made in 1986 and set in 1959. Do you  think the issues and relationships explored in this  movie are specific to a past period in time or are they  still currently relevant today? How is adolescent risk-taking portrayed in this clip  and how realistic do you think this portrayal is? What instances of peer influence (both positive and  negative) are depicted in the clip?

Stand By Me  How are the two groups of boys depicted differently?  What do these differential depictions reveal about the  ways in which male friendships change over the  course of adolescence?  Do you think that the young boys are portrayed as  more emotional or sensitive than is traditionally seen  in media representations? What does this say about  our conceptions of masculinity?
