The heart of the assignment is for you to analyze how Pleasantville works as film art in a multi- paragraph essay of around 3 to 5+ pages, double-spaced, 12-point font prose (a standard font like Times New Roman, Arial, or Calibri). Rather than focusing on a single element, like the photography, my suggestion is to organize the paper around the theme or themes you find (and how they are constructed) along with whatever narrative or filmic elements help create that theme or themes, including discussing the characters and what they learn (or what we learn through them [and especially the protagonist and what he wants and how that goal changes or morphs until at the end of the narrative (no longer having any use for it, right?) David aims the remote and clicks the damn show off]). So discuss what the film evokes to you, what Pleasantville means and how that meaning was created, only discussing plot elements as long as they’re evidence for your own analytical assertions
