When Bobby Garfield (David Morse--The Green Mile) returns to his hometown for the funeral of a boyhood friend, he recalls the magical summer of 1960... That summer a lodger (Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins--Nixon, Shadowlands) moves into eleven-year-old Bobby's house. A special bond grows between the mysterious, kindhearted lodger and the fatherless boy. But the lodger comes with a haunted past ... and strange powers that puzzle and alarm the impressionable boy. And in the few short weeks the lodger stays in his house, the way Bobby sees the world changes forever.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie has some strong language, characters are in peril and some are injured, and a character is raped (inexplicit and mostly offscreen). A character is wrongfully accused of molesting a child. A bully who accuses others of being "queer" turns out to be acting on his fears about his own sexuality. Fighting back is portrayed as heroic. There are a couple of chaste kisses.
