D.J. Caruso’s ‘Standing Up’ Streaming on Netflix


D.J. Caruso’s 2013 film adaptation of the popular young adult novel The Goats is now streaming on Netflix.

Set in the mid-1980s, Standing Up follows the journey of two campers at Camp Tall Pines after they are bullied and left stranded and naked on an island. Rather than face the humiliation of returning to camp Howie and Grace go on the run in a touching story of self-discovery, overcoming obstacles and standing up to bullies.

The movie is also available to rent or buy on Amazon.
