The trailers for the film would have you believe Hearts in Atlantisis a sci-fi actioner; it tries to scare you into seeing it. But its spirit is more pure than that. Anton Yelchin, our stand-in, is merely a kid coming of age, fighting through his fears, and he's too strong to be undone by low men or little boys. We know he will grow up to become a melancholy adult--Morse, in his few scenes, plays Bobby as a man who left the best part of himself in 1960--but not because he did anything wrong. Behind his wide eyes is a sharp mind and big heart, and Yelchin plays Bobby perfectly--as a child who knows he stands at the precipice of adulthood, and does so without any fear. The rest of us should be so fortunate.
