After the death of a friend, a writer recounts a boyhood journey to find the body of a missing boy.
A truly brilliant coming-of-age story that is among the most heartfelt and emotionally resonating films I have ever seen. Watching these young actors play characters that many of us would have passed by during our own childhoods makes it a very relatable film. Everything about this film was just perfect and I enjoyed watching every single moment of it. A classic that deserves to be watched time and time again.
