Write 2 pages minimum about the movie STAND BY ME & how it connects to the

It is extremely important to use specifics from each movie to make the connections. Please use metaphors from specific occurrences in the movie(s) to connect them – The use of thoughtful comparisons and specifics is essential.

This is a critical thinking assignment, therefore when writing, please be sure to answer the following questions: (1) what surprised me; (2) what interested me; (3) what does it tell us about who we are and where we come from as a human race; (4) how does the “us” vs. “them” mentality influence humans?
