I really liked Pleasantville. Coincidentally, I also saw The Hunger Games in the same weekend and it seems Gary Ross is quite the director. I find it much easier to like a movie when there is some sort of point. Pleasantville obviously has that, though it's a bit heavy-handed for my taste and tries to take on too much (race, sexual freedom, gender roles, etc is a lot). I do love the vaguely Twilight Zone feel to it and thought the cast turned in a solid all around performance.
