After attending the funeral of an old friend, artist Robert Garfield remembers the most important summer of his young life when, aged 11, he fell in love for the first time and had problems with his single parent mother. Then a mysterious old man, Ted Brautigan, moved in upstairs and changed everything…
Gentle, well-performed, but ultimately uninvolving. As King movies go, though, it's a heck of a lot better than Graveyard Shift, but it won't supplant anyone's memories of Stand By Me.
