We’re hoping that Episode 45 of The Film ‘89 Podcast will be a soothing balm to the soul in these troubling times we find ourselves in. With much of the world in lockdown and sports of all kind cancelled, we’ve decided to take a look back at director Phil Alden Robinson’s beloved 1989 baseball themed film, Field of Dreams. Far more than a mere sports drama, Field of Dreams is a heart warming, magical and deeply romantic tale of familial redemption and reunification, passion and longing for a bygone era and of course a shared love of one of America’s most cherished sports. Taking you on this journey are Steve Amos and John Arminio as they give their analysis of not just Field of Dreams, but some of their favourite films about the sport of baseball. Sport may be on hold but we hope you find this episode to be a welcome escape from the real world troubles we find ourselves in as you immerse yourself in our celebration of one of the most beloved and moving sports dramas of all-time.
