Brief Synopsis

Pleasantville is a 1950s sitcom enjoying cult status on a contemporary cable channel. David loves it, but his sister Jennifer is too hip. When a mysterious TV repairman gives them a new remote control, the pair are transported into the world of Pleasantville like it or not. They find themselves trapped in an alternate reality where the town exists in black and white--in a white bread world without passion or violence. But the teenagers have also brought an unexpected--and double-edged--gift to Pleasantville: a sense of possibility that spreads like wildfire throughout the town. There can be no turning back once the citizens begin experiencing such strange wonders as sex, art, rain, and ideas. First it is a red rose, a blade of green grass, eyes turn hazel... flesh tones shock and anger with their beauty. Gradually, the infection spreads Pleasantville becomes divided--rife for the first time with stark differences as it attempts to grasp the kaleidoscopic new world before it.
