Pleasantville is an interesting look into the cultural advancement of society with the introduction of modern life. The storyline (especially the ending) may be a bit trite, but the imagery and creativeness of the film's transition from black and white to color is pretty remarkable.

This movie reminded very much of "The Truman's Show" where everything is perfect but there is no freedom of choice. Every day is nothing but repetitiveness, acting, memorized scripts but nothing spontaneous. No insight into good and evil. I thought the idea of adding color to the scene every time a character had an insight or became aware of what was good and evil was brilliant. The movie is cleve... read more

"Two teenagers from the 90's are zapped into a b&w 50's sitcom. The movie follows how their modern ways affect the characters in the show. Some characters go through a sexual awakening, others more of a cultural awakening, but they each mature and advance in their own way. Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon are fantastic in their roles. This is beautifully shot and well written, and is far from the teen fantasy movie that it sometimes gets advertised as. "

"It aesthetically pleasing, especially when Toby was applying the black & white make up to his tv mum and the art in the film too. The story wasn't up to much but I didn't expect it to be. "
