Field of Dreams is not only a must see movie for baseball fans, but it is a movie that should be watched by everyone.
After hearing the famous line, "If you build it, they will come", farmer Ray Kinsella decides to cut down part of his cornfield and build a baseball field. After nothing happens, Kinsella is facing financial ruin.
Then, one day, a man appears on the field. It is Ray's father's idol, the deceased Shoeless Joe Jackson. He asks if he can bring the others to come play with him. He goes back into the cornfield and brings out the other seven players who were banned during the Black Sox Scandal.
Eventually more players come to the field to play and Ray hears the voices once again. He looks for Moonlight Graham, a player who appeared in one game and never got an at-bat, in Minnesota. He cannot find him but when he is driving back to Iowa, he picks up a hitch-hiker named Archie Graham.
The movie closes with a touching moment when the catcher at the baseball field takes of his mask. It turns out that he is Kinsella's father. The two had never been able to play catch since Ray ran away at age 14. Ray then asks his dad to play catch and they start tossing the ball around.
