DVD (Wide Screen)



Hearts in Atlantis, another in a series of films adapted from Stephen King novels, makes a wonderful translation to DVD. The image, which is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and, as would be expected, is anamorphic, is sharp and duplicates the theatrical experience as close as a disc can get. Sound, with a Dolby Digital 5.1 track, is equally impressive, even if it doesn't take advantage of the entire sound spectrum. Dialogue is clear and lacks any distortion, showing excellent audio mastering. The disc also features a soundtrack in French as well as subtitles in English and French. Though not really a special edition, this DVD does contain some fine supplemental materials. Of strong interest is a commentary track from soft spoken director Scott Hicks. He fills the time with valuable anecdotes that enhance the viewing of the film. Of great interest is a 30-minute interview with Anthony Hopkins. He is interviewed by Hicks and both have many insightful comments, not only about this film, but Hopkins' career and his acting style. Finally, there is a brief photo gallery and the theatrical trailer, making this a DVD that stands out in nearly every way.
