"Field of Dreams," loosely based on the 1982 novel "Shoeless Joe," is Kevin Costner's second appearance on this list. In this film, he plays Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella, whose failure to bond with his late baseball-fanatic father John (Dwier Brown) still haunts him.
After he hears a disembodied voice tell him the (now-iconic) statement, "If you build it, he will come," Ray decides to plow part of his cornfield in order to construct a baseball diamond on his farm. Over time, iconic baseball players from the past come to play a game, including the disgraced Chicago White Sox player Shoeless Joe Jackson (Ray Liotta).
Ray also connects with a former writer Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), who had a childhood dream of playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers, but has since distanced himself from the world.
This film is about more than baseball — it's about fathers and sons, faith, regrets, family, childhood joy, and ... well ... baseball.
