I loved Field of Dreams the first time I saw it, I was about 10 or 12.

3. Field of Dreams


Kids would understand this movie? Seems pretty metaphysical to me.

They would easily get the idea of bonding that takes place over baseball, and above all else the movie is about the raw emotional power and pull of baseball, specifically parents bonding with their children through it.

No list yet, but I'd like to mention Alfonso Cauron's A Little Princess, a wonderful film that almost no one has seen.

No mention of Star Wars? My nephews were addicted to that from an early age. I don't know how old they were when they finally saw Empire Strikes Back, but A New Hope and Return of the Jedi are innocuous and exciting.

Oh, and of course, Battle Royale.
