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 and Jennifer 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. This imaginative fantasy 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.
