Field of Dreams

"If you build it, he will come."

That line has been said over and over (usually misquoted, by the way) ever since the realease of Field of Dreams back in 1989. Some people considered it one of the greatest sport movies of all time. I'm one of those people.

Kevin Costner plays Ray Kinsella, a farmer from Iowa who hears a voice which he interprets as a message to build a baseball field in his cornfield. Everyone thinks he's crazy for doing such a thing, but Ray builds the field anyway. When the field's completed, the ghosts of "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta) and the other seven banned Chicago White Sox players appear. Ray continues to hear voices which leads him to "kidnap" controversial author/activist Terence Mann (James Earl Jones).

From what I heard, some people tend to watch it with their fathers (usually sons). If you don't cry at the ending of the movie you have a heart of stone.

My Rating: *****
