Maisa and I watched “Field of Dreams” last night. I’ve seen it 100 times, Maisa five times.
This morning, I asked Maisa to list her three favorite scenes. Her choices match up precisely with mine.
3. Terrance Mann’s “People will come” speech
2. Archie Graham becomes Doc Graham to save Karin, ending his stint as a baseball player.
1. Ray and his Dad have a catch as the cars come rolling into the farm.
What’s amazing is that all three of those scenes occur in the story’s final 15 minutes. Has any other movie packed that much drama and emotion into such a small slice of film?
