Hearts in Atlantis
2001
An elderly man (Anthony Hopkins) with bad eyesight and a gift for second sight moves into a widower's home as a boarder and befriends the woman's young son (Anton Yelchin), who reads to the aging visionary and learns of his mysterious power -- and the danger he's trying to escape. Set in the 1960s, this coming-of-age drama based on a short story by Stephen King came on the heels of the successful adaptation of King's The Green Mile.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

Though it occasionally wobbles when trying too hard to force the plot along, this sleepy drama mostly succeeds at maintaining a warm, dreamlike state of Boomer nostalgia, which is really its point. The less you know about Stephen King's book, the better.
