This week’s Throughline Thursdays examines the different kinds of conflict found in Peter Weir’s 1989 baseball fantasy, Field of Dreams.
Way back when, Google+ was a thing and we here at Narrative First thought it a good idea to relocate all of Dramatica’s online discussion to the Dramatica Users Google+ Community. Short-lived as it was, the uptick in participation prompted many interesting conversations—one of them an in-depth analysis of Field of Dreams.
Structured like the Dramatica Users Group meetings, the analysis began with a determination of the Four Throughlines, then moved on to the Character and Plot Dynamics, and finally concluded with a deep dive into Concerns, Issues, and Problems of each individual Throughline.
Eventually the analysis will be ported over to the Discuss Dramatica forums, but until then you can read the entire Online Analysis of Field of Dreams here.
