The epitome of the coming-of-age films. It is impossible not to be affected by this tale of childhood. And it is even sadder in retrospect to think how River Phoenix's life was struck as it was rising. This makes me cherish the film even more.
One of the few films I can watch over and over and my feelings for it will never change, no matter what. The characters are like family and their experiences following that train track has become like a distant memory of mine.
A amizade é o sentimento precioso e atemporal que nunca esmorece; que doa sem querer nada em troca; é o amor que cuida sem julgar; é a imagem que o tempo, a saudade, a distancia, e a ausência jamais poderão apagar de nossos corações...
If you're going to recommend a movie to your kids, make it this one. It's rare to see a movie about male friendships. And I always miss River Phoenix whenever I see this one.
I remember seeing this with my dad and he liked it. But he told me his favorite part was the one with "Lardass". My dad has been gone for years but I'll always cherish that memory.
