Childhood Summers In the Movies

Slate has put together a movie montage supercut featuring scenes of childhood summers from various films. Along with the sound of Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me,” the video Nostalgia of Summer is sure to take you back to your childhood . . . or at least make you remember some of these movies. Although it skews toward more recent movies, it still is a nice nostalgia trip.

What is your favorite movie featuring children in the summer? Of course, Stand by Me (1986) is a great movie about childhood, but so is To Kill a Mockingbird (1962).
