Hearts in Atlantis

Factual error: The movie is supposed to take place over the course of a single summer. In one section of the film, Bobby is reading a story about VP Nixon's recent Presidential nomination, which took place in 1960. Later, he is reading a story of Maury Wills base stealing record, which occurred in 1962. (00:25:00)

Audio problem: When Anthony Hopkins is talking to the boy, the boy is sitting in front of a mirror. Anthony starts talking to him, and the camera angle moves to behind Anthony. You can hear Anthony talking, but his lips aren't in sync to the reflection in the mirror.

Factual error: At the end of the movie Bobbie is riding off on his Schwinn Phantom. The film has been reversed, as it shows the kick stand of the bike on the right side of the bicycle. The kickstand on a Phantom, as all other bikes, is on the left. (01:31:30)
