Hearts in Atlantis

William Goldman, 1931-, Scott Hicks, Mychael Danna, Stephen King, 1947-

DVD - 2002

As a mid-aged man's friend dies, Bobby takes a look back at his childhood memories. When mysterious out-of-towner, Ted, moves into the boarding house that 11-year-old Bobby shares with his self-involved mother, Bobby jumps at the chance to befriend an adult who talks to him straightforwardly. Ted enlists Bobby to read him the newspaper daily--and to keep an eye out for the "low men" bent on capturing Ted, who possesses a strange mind-reading power.
