Field of Dreams
Review - Field of Dreams (1989)
After a voice told Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) to “build it and he will come,” he decided he better. As the voice continues to beckon him, he tries to figure out what he’s supposed to do in “Field of Dreams.”
Here’s an interesting one to talk about. I want to say that it’s “timeless,” but it probably will seem dated a little further down the road. The music is particularly specific from the time it was made, and the factual accuracies are hard to ignore. Then again, I guess time periods have nothing to do with whether a movie is “timeless” or not, but I guess we’ll see.
I really enjoyed this movie. It has a lot of heart and, even though I’m not a fan of baseball, I grew a new love for the game. The acting is really great, especially from Gaby Hoffman (as Karin Kinsella), who at age six gave a stellar performance.
“Field of Dreams” is a great family movie that can be enjoyed by just about anybody who’s ever even heard of baseball.
Final Score: 9.2/10
