Ellen Page participates in Jason Reitman's "Stand By Me" live read

Stand By Me Live-ReadOn March 17 »Juno« director Jason Reitman got several actresses together at LACMA's Bing Theater in Los Angeles to read the screenplay for the 1986 coming-of-age classic "Stand By Me" written by Raynold Gideon and Bruce A. Evans. Based on Stephen King’s novella "The Body" the movie is about a group of 12-year-old boys who go off in search of a dead body. Since the original centers around a group of male characters dealing with intense issues, it was interesting to see how a cast of acclaimed actresses and comedians would inhabit the roles.
However, the squad of incredible women, including Sarah Thyre, Charlyne Yi, Molly Ephraim, Kaitlyn Dever, Kristen Schaal, Collette Wolfe, Rosemarie DeWitt and Ellen, took the stage and illustrated that no matter gender or even the time period, the heartache of growing up is universal. The cast — who, per Live Reads tradition, had not rehearsed the material prior to taking to the stage — stumbled only once or twice as they bushwhacked through the script's dense tangle of adolescent insults and malapropisms. Yi as Verne and Ephraim as Teddy were reportedly particular stand outs, as was Thyre reading multiple different parts and destroying the audience with each one. Page, in turn, brought a quiet strength to Chris and Dever was inquisitive and innocent in her portrayal of young Gordy.
This was Ellen's second participation in the series after voicing Han Solo in the live read of "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" on December 18, 2014.

Indiewire - The All-Female "Stand By Me" Live Read Shows That Growing Up is for Everyone
HelloGiggles - The "Stand by Me" gender-swapped live read had me nostalgic for a time I've never known

There is unfortunately no video or audio footage as the Live Read series is a special event, where recording is strictly prohibited. In a world where everything is accessible to everyone all the time, this is entertainment solely meant for the people in attendance, a real once in a lifetime opportunity. So if you can, it's highly recommended that you get to one of Film Independent's Live Reads and experience a night with Reitman and one of his casts yourself!
