Field of Dreams, Kevin Costner 1989

I found a list of "Fifty All-American Movies" that capture the American spirit.
There are lots of movies like Field of Dreams, which is number 9 on this list, worth watching or watching again, found in the book "The American Patriot's Almanac" by William J. Bennett and Joyn T.E. Cribb.
Number one is Apollo Thirteen, and number 50 is Yankee Doodle Dandy. Sea Biscuit, To Kill a Mockingbird and High Noon are all on this list.
These films remind me of what John Wayne once said about his work, that this is "a country whose immense beauty and grandeur are matched only by the greatness of her people."
