 Phil Villarreal's Review: Field of Dreams | www.azstarnet.com ®
'Field of Dreams" is a magical movie made for Father's Day, for baseball fans who remember back when it was a game, and for anyone who owns a Louisville Slugger and longs for one more at-bat, one more fleeting grab at childhood, one more game of catch.
He sees his field plowed over to make way for a baseball diamond, and Shoeless Joe Jackson, a scandalized old-time baseball legend who was Ray's father's favorite, taking the field to play.
Ray struggles with his unfathomable urge to put his family's livelihood at risk to fulfill such a bizarre urge, but there is a sparkle in his eyes - maybe a trace of the flower child he used to be - that causes him to defy all logic.
