In the June 18 Akron Beacon Journal Clint O’Connor interviews Akronite actor Dwier Brown who played the father in Field of Dreams and later wrote the book If You Build It — a Book About Fathers, Fate and Field of Dreams. O’Connor’s article contains some good and useful information about the film; and, most importantly, O’Connor writes knowingly and sensitively of a film which treats the father/son motif as knowingly and sensitively as few films have. (Clint O’Connor, “‘Field of Dreams’ Isn’t Just a Film.” Akron Beacon Journal, 6/18/17).
Field of Dreams
Philip Alden (writer/director)
based on the book Shoeless Joe by William P. Kinsella

On Thursday, June 22 in the Akron Beacon Journal Clint O’Connor appears again, this time interviewing Akron’s own (San Francisco’s own, cinema’s own) Kurtiss Hare. In an illuminating full-page piece, O’Connor talks with Hare who, through the Nightlight Cinema, brings the best and most challenging of world cinema right to the door of northeast Ohio.
