Released in 1998, Pleasantville was a disappointment at the box office, but quickly developed a cult audience as stars Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire became Hollywood A-listers.
In this week's episode, we discuss our reactions to the film, including the groundbreaking special effects, some surprisingly raunchy gags and William H. Macy's heartbreaking quest for a home-cooked dinner.
Beyond the Box Set is a movie podcast with a twist. Each week we take a look at a well-known standalone movie and compete to pitch ridiculous sequel, prequel and spin-off ideas to bring them back to the big screen.
