Field of Dreams ()

directed by
featuring Kevin Costner, Amy Madigan, James Earl Jones, Ray Liotta, Burt Lancaster

"If you build it, he will come." That's the ethereal message that inspires Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to construct a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. At first, "he" seems to be the ghost of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta), who materializes on the ballfield and plays a few games with the awestruck Ray. But as the weeks go by, Ray receives several other messages from a disembodied voice, one of which is "Ease his pain." He realizes that his ballfield has been divinely ordained to give a second chance to people who have sacrificed certain valuable aspects of their lives. One of these folks is Salingeresque writer Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), whom Ray kidnaps and takes to a ball game and then to his farm. Another is Doc Graham (Burt Lancaster), a beloved general practitioner who gave up a burgeoning baseball career in favor of medicine. The final "second-chancer" turns out to be much closer to Ray. That "magical" field in Dyersville, Iowa still draws thousands of baseball-happy tourists each year. Hal Erickson, Rovi Hide synopsis

Great Baseball Story

by Cubfan on Aug 7, 2008

I had rented this movie before and enjoyed it so much that I decided to make it part of my collection. It's a fantasy story.... but not only an interesting baseball story about Shoeless Joe Jackson, but also a great human relationship story about a father and son and their desire to spend time together. After watching this with my son, we both play more catch together now because we see it can be a bonding time.
