Overview
In the black-and-white '50s sitcom realm of Pleasantville, mom always has a yummy meatloaf in the oven, the home team never loses and romance is a shy peck on the cheek. Until now. Because modern, real-life teens David (Tobey Maguire) and Jennifer (Reese Witherspoon) are mysteriously zapped into that TV world. With them come ideas and passions that turn the town's cozy perfection into something more challenging and colorful. From Gary Ross (Big, Seabiscuit) comes an imaginative fantasy that maintains its humor even as it reveals its own true colors about embracing life in all its messiness and unpredictability. Don't touch that dial. Stay tuned to life in Pleasantville.
