Overview

One of the short stories in a best-selling collection by author Stephen King becomes this mystery adapted for director Scott Hicks by screenwriter William Goldman, who previously transformed a King story into a box-office hit Misery, 1990. In the summer of 1960, young Bobby Garfield Anton Yelchin is sharing adventures with his best friends Carol Mika Boorem and Sully Will Rothhaar when an enigmatic lodger named Ted Brautigan Anthony Hopkins rents a room in his family's boarding house. Bobby's self-absorbed, widowed mother Liz Hope Davis couldn't care less about her son, so Bobby, who is being tormented by local bullies, quickly befriends the otherworldly Ted, becoming his confidante, and reading the paper to him to save the aging man's failing eyesight. Soon, Bobby learns that Ted possesses supernatural gifts, has a haunted past, and is being pursued by sinister men whose intentions are unclear. Hearts in Atlantis co-stars David Morse, who appeared in the previous King adaptation The Green Mile 1999, as the adult Bobby.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
One of 2001's most underrated movies, Hearts in Atlantis is a gentle, unassuming coming-of-age drama with a memorable star turn from the brilliant Anthony Hopkins. Adapted from a Stephen King novelette by Oscar-winning screenwriter William Goldman, Hearts unfolds mostly in flashback from the perspective of middle-aged Robert Garfield played by David Morse, whose bittersweet return to his hometown brings back specific memories of his childhood. As a sensitive 11-year-old Anton Yelchin, he had craved the affection of his bitter, emotionally distant mother, Elizabeth Hope Davis, but settled instead for the adoration of his first love, beautiful classmate Carol Gerber Mika Boorem. One fateful summer, their lives changed forever with the arrival at the Garfield home of new boarder Ted Brautigan Hopkins, a mysterious loner whose dark secrets and cataleptic trances didn't prevent him from befriending Bobby at a crucial time. Goldman's screenplay omits the supernatural elements of King's tale and substitutes a more mundane, traditional menace; director Scott Hicks Snow Falling on Cedars further downplays this aspect of the story in favor of simple, straightforward, and occasionally heart-tugging drama. Hopkins dominates the film with his understated, pitch-perfect performance, conveying more with a raised eyebrow or a wistful sigh than most actors could with a whole page of dialogue. He's the glue that holds Hearts in Atlantis together, and that strong bond makes this unexpectedly tender movie one you absolutely should not miss. Hopkins joins Hicks in a filmed interview included on the DVD, which also offers a full-length commentary by the director, some theatrical trailers, and a photo gallery.

Hicks's film is magical, but its magic comes not from the inexplicable phenomena we most commonly associate with King, but from the charms of childhood. Michael O'Sullivan

    Not scary at all but still a worth King movie!

    Hey,fright freaks! No fright here! But it's very touching and solemn. It's not a boring girly movie, there's some manly stuff in there too. Like gambling, drinking, and some violence. Rent!
