Movie Description

1989's Field of Dreams is a consensus choice for nearly any "Top 10" list of not only baseball movies, but sports films as well. Adapted from the W.P Kinsella novel, Shoeless Joe, Field of Dreams stars Kevin Costner as an Iowa farmer who begins hearing voices in his cornfield, and despite initial skepticism, Ray (Costner) obeys the voice and proceeds to build a baseball field.

Through several starts and stops, Ray discovers that his "field of dreams" is being visited by none other than Shoeless Joe Jackson, his father's boyhood idol who, although he was one of the greatest baseball players of all time, was implicated in the infamous 1919 Black Sox scandal and banned from the game for life.

Costner is at his "everyman" best, while the remainder of the cast, including Amy Madigan, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones and, in his final major big screen role, Burt Lancaster, are all superb.
