Field of Dreams
The movie Field of Dreams directed by Phil Alden Robinson and starring Kevin Costner is a moving story about one man, Ray Kinsella whose father, John, was almost in the MLB, but never quite got there. John’s favorite player was Shoeless Joe Jackson. He and Ray got into a fight and his son made fun of his favorite player right before he walked out of the door and never talked to him again. The story takes place in Iowa in 1988 on a corn field and focuses Ray’s family.
One day he hears a voice in the corn field that says, “If you build it, he will come.” The movie revolves around this voice. The voice appears at least three other times saying phrases relating to the first one. The first man that shows up after Ray builds a baseball field is Shoeless Joe Jackson.
