Pleasantville

A kind of "Wizard of Oz" in reverse as two 1990's teenagers become trapped in the golly-gee suburban fantasy world of a 1950's sitcom, where everything is literally black and white. But when the 90's pop culture clashes with 50's family values, chaos ensues, turning the town of Pleasantville upside down and black and white into colour.
