Iowa farmer Ray Kinsella (Kevin Costner) is inspired by a voice he can’t ignore to pursue a dream he can hardly believe.
Supported by his wife (Amy Madigan), Ray begins the quest by turning his ordinary cornfield into a place where dreams can come true. Along the way he meets reclusive activist Terence Mann (James Earl Jones), the mysterious “Doc” Graham (Burt Lancaster) and even the legendary “Shoeless Joe” Jackson (Ray Liotta).
It was nominated for three Academy Awards, including for Best Original Score, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Picture, and in 2017 was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”
Even notoriously hard-to-impress Roger Ebert awarded the film a perfect four stars, admiring its ambition: “This is the kind of movie Frank Capra might have directed, and James Stewart might have starred in — a movie about dreams.”
