The Field is a movie that all too often reveals its origins as a play.

As overwrought as [My Left Foot] was understated.

A painfully overwrought combination of A Touch of the Poet and Zorba the Greek.

Sheridan seems out in left field here, undone by the sheer hokum of the material.

The Field is a grim allegory of hard life on the land -- a symbolic play, transplanted uneasily to the greater realism of the film medium, where what we might accept on the stage now looks contrived and artificial.
