Answer to Question #224559 in Philosophy for syed

Question #224559

Watch the movie Pleasantville (1998), an older classic about a young man, David, and his twin sister, Jennifer, who are sucked through their television into a 1950s black-and-white sitcom where it is always a pleasant 72 degrees, books have no words, there is no sex, and everyone accepts rigid conventional lives. 

Q 1 What role, if any, do you see autonomy, knowledge, rationality, freedom, and choice playing in the movie?

Q 2 What do black and white indicate in the movie?

Expert's answer

Q2. When used in a movie, black and white provides atmosphere, a sense of tone, and stark contrasts, as well as creating an almost surrealistic view of the world. It can simultaneously make a film feel more real (like period-accurate film and photographs) and feel unreal (like computer-generated images) (real life is in color).
