(Phil Alden Robinson, US 1989, 107 min., 35mm)
America’s Favorite Pastime | Director In Person. Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) is an Iowa corn farmer with some demons in his past. He begins to hear voices and see visions related to baseball. After plowing under part of his crop to build a baseball field, he is led by the voices on a road trip, meeting along the way a bitter radical (James Earl Jones) and a retired physician (Burt Lancaster)—all of this in an attempt to heed the voices’ plea to “ease his pain.” Baseball is magic in this film, bringing past and present together in a healing act that will give you a second chance, if only you believe. If we show it, you will come.
Writer/director Phil Alden Robinson will be present for a Q&A after the screening of Field of Dreams.
