We have a treat of a movie this week! Field of Dreams is not only known for being one of the best baseball movies of all time, but it’s simply a wonderful film. Nominated for 3 awards at the 1990 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Music for James Horner’s exquisite score). This movie’s got it all. Kevin Costner doing what he does best alongside Amy Madigan who slays it as the ride-or-die hippie wife. Gaby Hoffmann makes her acting debut as the sweet and undeterrable Karin Kinsella. I could go on and on. It’s filled with that guys galore (Timothy Busfield, Frank Whaley, Art LaFleur), while the heavy hitters (Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones) absolutely knock it out of the park (pun intended).
Really, what’s not to like about this movie? It’s a small town fantasy story wrapped around the American Pastime. We grew up in a small town with a strong farming community, so we have a bit of a direct perspective.
Unfortunately, it took us entirely too long to get the audio set up, so we started way late. Like, 2 hours passed my bedtime, late. So get a little rambly in the middle of the pod, but we recover to have a really strong recasting session, so either hang in there, or skip to the third segment.
As always, thanks so much for listening to the show. Hit us up on twitter (@recastingpod) and tell us your picks or to send us your suggestions for future recasts. You can also always shoot us an email at email@example.com. Help us grow our audience by telling a friend or two, or five or thirty, or just leave us a 5 star review on iTunes or wherever you consume podcasts.
