Lathe of Heaven is a 2002 television movie based on the similarly named science fiction novel by Ursula K. Le Guin and a remake of the 1980 adaptation. It was produced for the A&E network in 2002 and directed by Philip Haas. It was nominated for the 2003 Saturn Award for Best Single Program Presentation.[1]


It starred James Caan, Lukas Haas, and Lisa Bonet. Unlike the 1980 adaptation, it discards a significant portion of the plot, some minor characters, and much of the philosophical underpinnings of the book.
