About Pleasantville

Two 1990s teenage siblings find themselves in a 1950s sitcom, where their influence begins to profoundly change that complacent world.

About

Two siblings get thrown into their favorite 1950s sitcom, but they bring some color into the drab black and white world. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards. 

Trivia
