About Field of Dreams (USA, 1989, 107 minutes)
When hardworking Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella starts hearing voices, he takes a life-altering leap of faith and transforms his cornfield into a baseball diamond. His journey gives him a second look at what it means to dream, reminding him that not everything is as it seems. “If you build it, he will come.” This enchanting, heart-warming film features Kevin Costner, James Earl Jones, Burt Lancaster, and Amy Madigan. Rated: PG
