  • Pleasantville is the beloved 1998 comic fantasy drama from celebrated writer/director Gary Ross (Seabiscuit). Pleasantville takes unlikely twin brother and sister David (Toby Maguire, Spider Man, The Ice Storm) and Jennifer (Reese Witherspoon, Fear) into the 1950`s T.V. show Pleasantville, becoming Bud and Mary Sue. Their parents, played by William H. Macy (Fargo) and Joan Allen (Nixon) are blind to this transition. Although a nightmare for Mary Sue, Bud is having his dream come true, for he knows everything about this small town where everything is in varying shades of gray. As the outsiders introduce concepts of love, feelings, color, and life in general shown through sex, art, literature and emotion, their world changes. Jeff Daniels (Speed) plays Mr. Johnson, who tears through his dissatisfaction of constant routine, expressing his natural artistic talents. As Pleasantville`s residents discover a new passion which they never expressed before, they and their surroundings turn to color.moreless
