“If you build it, he will come.” With these words, Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) is inspired by a voice he can’t ignore to pursue a dream he can hardly believe. Also starring Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and Amy Madigan, Field of Dreams is an extraordinary and unforgettable experience that has moved critics and audiences like no other film of its generation. Field of Dreams is a glowing tribute to all who dare to dream.
A phenomenal hit when it was released in 1989, Field of Dreams has become a modern classic and a uniquely American slice of cinema. It functions effectively as a moving drama about the power of dreams, a fantasy ode to our national pastime, and a brilliant adaptation of W.P. Kinsella's exquisite baseball novel Shoeless Joe. Kinsella himself found the film a delightful surprise, differing greatly from his novel but benefiting from its own creative variations. It is the film that cemented Kevin Costner's status as an all-American screen star, but the story resonates far beyond Costner's handsome appeal. As just about everyone knows by now, Costner stars as Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella, who hears the mysterious words "If you build it, he will come," and is compelled to build a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. His wife (Amy Madigan) supports the wild idea, but a reclusive novelist (modeled after J.D. Salinger and played by James Earl Jones) is not so easily persuaded. The idealistic farmer is either a visionary or a deluded fool, but his persistence is rewarded when spirits from baseball's past begin appearing on the ball field. Past and present intermingle in the person of "Moonlight Graham" (superbly played by Burt Lancaster), an unknown player who sacrificed his dreams of baseball glory for a dignified life as a small-town physician ... but what all of this means is unclear until the film's memorably heartfelt conclusion. A meditation on family, memory, and faith, the film balances humor and magic to strike just the right chord of thoughtful emotion, affecting audiences so deeply that the baseball field created for the production has now become a mecca of sorts for dreamers around the world. --Jeff Shannon

One of Costner's finest performances and James Earl Jones is outstanding in support. Good character development and the rest of the supporting cast is good too. More of a human interest story without much special effects. Moves along well and dammit, you feel good when it's over. Then you have to love the main character's driving an old Vw bus from Iowa to Boston, then to Minnesota and back without breaking down ;-)
This is my favorite Kevin Costner movie. I especially enjoyed Costner and James Earl Jones together on screen. Good acting from everyone.
This movie is very good. There are so many classic lines that i quote from time to time. It is one of those movies that is just iconic in it's genre. This is a movie that any age can enjoy and will enjoy . Terrific story.
The great Uncle was the best "spitballer in the State of Wisconsin" but didn't like to travel so never really broke out to the major leagues. He loved the game though.

The ground is littered with films that ask us to feel one way, and instead we feel the opposite.Read more
