Directed by Gary Ross
Starring Reese Witherspoon, Tobey Maguire

New Line Home Video | September 15, 2003 | DVD

Pleasantville is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
Two modern American teenagers are sucked into their television set and end up living in a black-and-white 1950s sitcom. Bewildered by their new world's naivete and innocence, they slowly start to add colour and spice to the town's life. Eventually, however, they begin to question their influence, wondering if their advanced '90s attitudes are really that much better than those of the innocent past. A powerful commentary on modern life along with sterling visual effects and standout performances make the critically acclaimed Pleasantville a poignant, entertaining effort.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic Movie This is one of my favourite movies. It is everything that is great about classic tv along with a bit of modernity. Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire give great performances, but its Jeff Daniels as the Ice Cream Parlour Owner, who dreams of painting, that gives the most outstanding performance.
