One of the six stories, “Low Men in Yellow Coats,” was adapted for the film version of Hearts in Atlantis. William Goldman, who also wrote The Princess Bride, wrote the screenplay. The film stars Anthony Hopkins as Ted, the upstairs neighbor with psychic powers, and Anton Yelchin as Bobby, the kid downstairs who grows deeply attached to his strange neighbor. Steven Hicks directed the film and landed a best director Oscar nomination for Shine in 1996.
