Throughout life, we come to points where nothing is really going on. It is not long before something catches us off guard and changes our life. Sometimes it’s not quite clear why these events happen or for what reason, but they usually turn out to be very life changing. There is also an uncertain feeling of whether or not the event is good or bad. For Ray Kinsella this comes in the form of a spectral voice that resonates through his corn fields. In the movie Field of Dreams, Ray helps deceased characters through fulfilling their life long dreams and finding amnesty.
After hearing a spectral voice, Ray Kinsella convinces himself to build a full size baseball field in the middle of his corn fields. Weeks later, this baseball field introduces Ray to the first soul he will redeem: Shoeless Joe Jackson. After Jackson’s incident at the Nineteen Twenty’s World Series, he was banned from the game he loved. When Ray built the baseball field, it gave Shoeless Joe Jackson a second chance at his dream. Throughout the movie, the character of Joe grows happier and happier with each game played on Ray’s baseball field. Shoeless Joe not only has his dreams to come true, but helps Ray to make his dream come true as well by significantly helping him with his connection to his father.
Next, Ray comes in contact with are the rest of the old baseball players. The main ones played in the 1920 World Series with Shoeless Joe Jackson. Like Joe, most just wanted another chance to play baseball with players of equal professional value. This is another purpose the baseball field Ray built served. Once the rest of the old professionals came Shoeless Joe could play games instead of just a batting practice. The excitement in the player’s faces as they play is obviously made clear in the movie. Like Joe the players seem to also aid Ray in achieving his dreams.
Ray discovers the next person he must redeem while attending a local Iowan PTA meeting, an author by the name...
