Field of Dreams
An Academy Gold Standard Screening Featuring a 20th anniversary presentation of Field of Dreams, Hosted by Los Angeles Times Film Critic Kenneth Turan
Followed by a cast-and-crew reunion including actor Kevin Costner; writer-director Phil Robinson; producers Chuck Gordon and Lawrence Gordon; production designer Dennis Gassner; and cinematographer John Lindley.
Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) hears a voice in his cornfield, telling him “If you build it, he will come.” This mysterious occurrence leads Ray into the past, on an unexpected cross-country journey, and in search of an elusive connection with his long-dead father. This is a magical film about the transformative power of baseball, the love of a son for his father, and believing in something that you can’t quite define in words.
