The Field (1990)
Acclaimed Irish director Jim Sheridan helmed this gritty, yet moving 1990 film, which was based on a play by John B. Keane. Richard Harris was nominated for a Best Actor Oscar for his moving portrayal of a stubborn farmer who's outraged when he learns an Irish-American (Tom Berenger) intends to buy his rented plot of land and industrialize the area.
