Plot
"If you build it, he will come." That's the ethereal message that inspires Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella ( Kevin Costner ) to construct a baseball diamond in the middle of his cornfield. At first, "he" seems to be the ghost of disgraced ballplayer Shoeless Joe Jackson ( Ray Liotta ), who materializes on the ballfield and plays a few games with the awestruck Ray. But as the weeks go by, Ray receives several other messages from a disembodied voice, one of which is "Ease his pain." He realizes that his ballfield has been divinely ordained to give a second chance to people who have sacrificed certain valuable aspects of their lives. One of these folks is Salingeresque writer Terence Mann ( James Earl Jones ), whom Ray kidnaps and takes to a ball game and then to his farm. Another is Doc Graham ( Burt Lancaster ), a beloved general practitioner who gave up a burgeoning baseball career in favor of medicine. The final "second-chancer" turns out to be much closer to Ray. Often described as a baseball film, Field of Dreams is actually a celebration of the love of baseball, as encapsulated by the rousing curtain speech delivered by James Earl Jones. That "magical" field in Dyersville, Iowa still draws thousands of baseball-happy tourists each year. — Hal Erickson
