Pleasant isn’t a good enough word for it! This is a lovely little indie film from the late 90’s, with a very sweet looking Reece Weatherspoon (Jennifer) and super young looking Toby Miguire (David). They’re twin brother and sister, she’s the coolest in the school and he couldn’t be more of a nerd. Sucked into his favorite TV show, they’re transported back in time to an idealized 50’s small town called Pleasantville, where everything is black and white, and peachy perfect. Until Jessie hits town. 90s girl cool is not the same as 50s perfect and her bad girl ways start to spread……as they do, the world becomes technicolour. It becomes increasingly hard to hide their knowledge of the outside world.
The cinimatorgraphy is beautiful, the clothes are stunning and it has some really beautiful moments to it.
