Field of Dreams

  • Dir: Phil Alden Robinson

  • USA, 1989, 105minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, Burt Lancaste

Hearing a mystical voice urging “If you build it, he will come”, Ray, a dutiful farmer left musing over lost idealism, is propelled to answer the call. His haywire act of putting a baseball pitch amidst his crop heralds the arrival of ghostly Shoeless Joe, the baseball great who was brought low by throwing the 1919 World Series. Joe is given another chance to play again, and so is Ray – with his long-deceased father who missed his opportunity. A whimsical melodrama that skillfully amplifies baseball as a metaphor for living one’s dream, and a profound reflection on father-son relationship that still carries its emotional weight.
