Film Adaptation/Shoeless Joe & Field of Dreams

Uploaded by :

A 10 page research paper that discusses Field of Dreams (1989, directed by Phil Alden Robinson for Universal Studios) as a film adaptation of W.P. Kinsella’s short story “Shoeless Joe Jackson Comes to Iowa.” Examination of these two works and the adaptation process demonstrates that this is an instance where the filmmaker was extremely successful at capturing not only the substance of Kinsella’s plot, but the magic of his writing and vision.
