HEARTS IN ATLANTIS

 

 

This psychological drama combines coming of age, a first kiss, bullies, and nostalgia forthe 60s (which they captured perfectly).

The film has just enough mystical powers without over doing the supernatural thing.

Anthony Hopkins plays a mysterious character who is psychic. His performance is solid, along with a near-perfect cast. This is one of the year's most purely satisfying films.

In the summer of 1960, tensions were high, as the threat of communism loomed darkly over the nation like a thick blanket of fog.

Mysterious strangers were suspect, and so were the people who were chasing them.
It was that summer when 11-year-old Bobby Garfield's life would be changed forever.

Hearts in Atlantis is a nostalgic coming-of-age film with solid acting all around, and compared to other films out this year--a gem.

(Sings, Only You.)

Hearts in Atlantis
is a coming-of-age tale about a young boy who's befriended by a mysterious stranger.

The movie is low key but consistently interesting with a treasure of fascinating characters.

It's a small, well-contained, beautiful film with a very touching story.
