Hearts in Atlantis

For a Steven King adaptation, Hearts in Atlantis was quite good, compared to most of the movies from his books (of course, Misery is still much better). Well acted, and an interesting story, though Bernie said a lot more happened in the book than in the movie. One scene that got to me specifically was where Bobby's mother found Ted with Caroline and Bobby after Caroline's dislocated shoulder was fixed. I wonder how my mother would have reacted to that scene. What is it with Steven King settings? There is always a train line, a creek and some woodland close by, and large houses with friends houses nearby. Always.
