Throwback Thursday: Pleasantville

pleasantville-originalEvery so often, we’ll be featuring an older film for you to discover or re-discover.  Like the social networking trend, we call this feature Throwback Thursday. Today’s gem comes from library staff member Judy Sparzo. Judy recommends 1998’s Pleasantville.  From IMDb,

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

Judy mentioned in the wake of Paul Walker’s death “he has a small role in the film.  Also, some great actors (Tobey Maguire, Reese Witherspoon, Joan Allen, William H. Macy, and Jeff Daniels) and a time travel premise that always manages to fascinate.”
