Field of Dreams

(1989)

If you believe the impossible, the incredible can come true.

Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves) stars in this feel-good family fantasy about a farmer that interprets a voice in his head as instructions to build a baseball diamond in his corn field. ... More

Ray Kinsella (Costner) hears a voice one night telling him "If you build it, he will come." Thus, he begins to build a baseball diamond in a corn field behind his house. Soon after, the apparition of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) appears on the diamond, along with seven Chicago White Sox players that were banned from playing baseball in 1919. Ray receives more messages from the disembodied voice and comes to realise that his baseball diamond was ordained to help give people a second chance.

The diamond built for the film is still an Iowan tourist attraction today, although developers are threatening to bulldoze the site and build a mega sports complex. Hide

  • The kind of movie Frank Capra might have directed, and James Stewart might have starred in -- a movie about dreams. Full Review

  • Too idiosyncratic and witty merely to wallow in sentimentality, Field Of Dreams will surely stand as a classic update of what made Old Hollywood so magical. Full Review

  • So smartly written, so beautifully filmed, so perfectly acted, that it does the almost impossible trick of turning sentimentality into true emotion. Full Review

  • Made back in the days when the words "starring Kevin Costner" weren't a threat, Field Of Dreams is a sweet-natured modern fable. Full Review
