Throwback Thursday-Field Of Dreams (1989)

Sometimes, when we think our lives are ordinary, they become extraordinary.

In Field Of Dreams (1989), Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) think that his life is ordinary. It’s about to become extraordinary.

He starts to hear whispers all around him. More specifically, he hears “If you build it, he will come”. He tries to ignore the whispers, but they persist.

When he finally listens to the whispers, Ray levels a portion of his field to build a baseball field. His friends and neighbors think he is crazy. But when the field is filled by baseball players, Ray’s life is no longer ordinary.

What I like about this movie is that is dramatic and entertaining without becoming too schmaltzy. At the end of the day, Ray listened to his gut and not to the chatter of others. It’s a lesson we all should partake of every now and then.

I recommend it.
