Pleasantville (1998)

Siblings David (Tobey Maguire) and Jennifer (Reese Witherspoon) don't always see things eye to eye. One evening while their mother is away from home, the two of them fight over the use of the television set. Jennifer wants to watch an MTV concert because she was inviting a boy over and David wants to watch a marathon of his favorite show, Pleasantville. They accidentally broke the remote control and their TV set cannot be turned on manually. An uninvited TV repairman showed up at their doorstep, and quizzes David about the show Pleasantville. The repairman hands over a strange looking remote control. David and Jennifer resumed their fighting and they suddenly found themselves transported into Pleasantville.

I was really excited to see this film as soon as I saw the plot. I think it's safe to say that at some point, everyone had dreamt of living inside the world of their favorite TV show/movie/book. Pleasantville proved that what seems so perfect probably isn't, and the flaws that exists in our world actually makes our existence truly alive.Two thumbs up!
