This is a gentle, innocent film about the reflections of an aging man, who returns to his home town after the death of his best friend. Memories of life at age 11 floods back as it was a magical time that changed his life. Three 11 year old children (Bobby, Carol, and Sully) share their lives. Carol and Bobby have a special affection for one another including sharing a kiss “by which all others will be measured”. Bobby lives with his mother, a bitter, vain woman who looks for pleasures for herself without sharing much with her son. Into their lives comes a mysterious new boarder, who befriends the boy but generates distrust from the mother. As time passes, the man and boy share confidences and special powers are revealed. The man warns the boy to be on the lookout for the “lowmen”, who were seeking him. The two share a summer’s adventures and come to love one another before the inevitable happens. A confrontation with a school bully also changes everyone.

Film Review

One thing you generally don't expect of a Stephen King adaptation is schmaltz. The same goes for William Goldman, a hard, cynical bastard if ever there was one. So why is this movie dripping in so much sentimental goo that it feels like an explosion at a candy floss factory? It doesn't help that there isn't much plot to go around. Boy meets weird old lodger, weird old lodger turns out to be wanted by… well, some bunch of nasties, anyway, for some reason. Several baddies get the old man, another of them rapes the boy's mother. And all this somehow helps the kid grow up – which makes everything all right, I guess.Let's say one thing straight out: Scott Hicks is a great man when it comes to composing a shot. Some of the scenes here are pure artistry, and they look beautiful. And there are good moments, too, most notably the scene with Alan Tudyk's 3-card monte man, and the opening scenes with David Morse. Those scenes set me up for thinking that this film was go…

Hearts in Atlantis is a cozy and familiar feeling story with great acting from Anton Yelchin, very well sharing screen time with Anthony Hopkins. Yelchin as Bobby reminded me of a mix of Sean Astin/Fred Savage as child actors, always leading a scene. He did a very good job. The story is anchored by their relationship – like a grandpa and grandson, often talking about sports or life in general. The supporting cast also did a good job too with a requisite bully and girlfriend and a bit of mystery with Hopkins character's past. Hope Davis does OK as Bobby's mother. The clairvoyance/psychic ability was not well explained, and sort of a distraction. Also, the grown up Bobby all of the sudden meeting a girl who coincidentally was the daughter of one of the supporting main characters seemed utterly contrived, but it was a small scene that just needed to be edited out – so forgivable. An enjoyable movie, Hearts in Atlantis is a touching narrative, while not ground-breaking, with compe…

Cinematography was simply fantastic that told a tale of a relationship of a boy and an old man who also seemed to suggest that they both had have special powers. A story about a boy growing up with great music and a first love with a hint of a but this is where it lets me down, I find it slow and unbelievable but not in the way that you would think. While I like the idea that both the boy and the old man can see into the minds of others and i like the music and imagery which is simply divine but the script is poor and ill conceived. It is hardly believable for the era that a mother would be worried about the relationship of an old man or the mother of the girl is never seen but the mother of the son is questioning an old man or even her own son questioning his own mother about smoking? …. This is of course written for the era WE LIVE in. Then we have the clothing of the young girl …. It was never acceptable for young girl of that era to wear knee high jeans this was a more of a te…
