Synopsis

Sensible David and his more flamboyant sister Jennifer get sucked into their TV to become two characters in the monochrome fifties sitcom 'Pleasantville'. Their arrival exposes the locals to 90's values of sex and enlightenment with colourful results.

An ingenious fable and metaphor for what happened to 50's America when the 60's arrived.

Critics

open_quote A playful and pleasing spoof of both the small- minded lifestyle idealised by reactionary advocates of family values and the intolerance and insecurity underlying that ideal close_quote Time Out
