Excellent!

I was pleasantly surprised by this relatively unknown film that has themes of racism, McCarthyism and definately pokes fun at the sterile comedies of the 50's like Leave it to Beaver. Both Toby McGuire and Reese Weatherspoon are excellent as twins who are transported to the world of a 50's comedy (Pleasantville) that they were watching and had a fight over the tv remote.

The world is in black and white and the people are always happy. As Witherspoon and McGuire make changes, the people start to go from being black and white to color and some may feel they are destroying Eden (there is even a scene with McGuire eating an apple from his girlfriend and causing a lot of change as a result).

Should not be missed!
