An Iowa corn farmer, hearing voices and seeing visions, is compelled to build a baseball diamond in his fields. His fantasy becomes a reality when Shoeless Jo Jackson, and other members of the infamous 1919 Black Sox team come out of the cornfield to play. Based on the book, Shoeless Joe, by W. P. Kinsella, FIELD OF DREAMS is a story of mystery, magic, and the mythology of baseball.
Sorry, he is unable to visit Albany--production on new movie (THE SUM OF ALL FEARS w/Ben Affleck) is running over schedule.
Writer/Director Phil Alden Robinson will present film commentary following the screening. Phil Alden Robinson has also directed THE SUM OF ALL FEARS (2002), "Band of Brothers" (2001, mini TV series), FREEDOM SONG (2000, TV), SNEAKERS (1992), and IN THE MOOD (1987, aka THE WOO WOO KID).
