Twin siblings David and Jennifer couldn't be more different: she curses, smokes, and sleeps around; David is a prototypical nerdy outcast. Then, one dark and stormy night, they're sucked into the TV and Pleasantville: a perfect suburban Disneyland suffused with church-social niceness and Rotary Club boosterism. Jennifer despises it all. So, like a pint-size Lauren Bacall, she refuses to play the role of poodle-skirted good girl and introduces one of the boys to sex, after which this bland, black and white world magically begins changing into color. Through the combined forces of sex and rock 'n' roll, it becomes clear that the things that make life worth living--passion, knowledge, and love--are far removed from safety, stability, and bland sterility. Before too long, the whole town is wondering: what's outside Pleasantville?
