Field of Dreams is one of those films that's pretty hokey in outline but, somehow, the results up on screen just have that elusive, feel-good glow about them. It works so well because, at its heart, it's less of the cheesy paean to baseball that you might expect from a written synopsis and more a tale about humanity's eternal desire to resolve the regrets of the past.
Kevin Costner may not be the best Hollywood actor around but here he's perfectly cast as the Ordinary Joe protagonist. At the same time, he is outshined by the underrated Amy Madigan as his plucky, dedicated wife and James Earl Jones as a reclusive former radical writer whom he gets in contact with. The latter's story arc is particularly satisfying.
If nothing else gets to you here, the uplifting final image almost certainly will.
