To start, the film seems like your basic run-on-the mill coming of age tale with a group of teenagers growing up to desire more after they graduate high school. However, there are various more themes discreetly displayed throughout the runtime of the film. For example, one central sociological overtone of this film is Marxism. With this overtone, it becomes possible to view this light-hearted and comedic movie in a
The Olympics were revived in 1896 thanks to Pierre de Coubertin. Since its reemergence in 1896, the modern Olympic movement has been shaped and influenced politically through the tensions between countries, economically through financial gain opportunity, and socially by promoting women’s rights. Another document I would like to have seen would be one containing a record of third world countries that have attended the Olympics. This document would have shown how wealth effects and shapes the modern Olympics.

The movie is about two teenagers, David and Jennifer who get drawn into the 1950s fictional, black-and-white television sitcom, Pleasantville.

I choose to use this humour because I believe that this film mocks the lifestyle of white people. White people live in a very simple lifestyle with the farther going to work, the mum staying home to do house work and the two young children going to school. The police superintendent in the film says “They might have to get off their back sides and do a decent days of work for a change” this insinuates that white people don’t try new things, this is one of their weaknesses. I believe that another weakness of white people is of voicing their true opinion for example when the reporter asks the parents if they believe that the government are “doing the right thing” the father says “aww yea” he says then the mother says “very good” “they’ll look after us don’t they kids” the father says while looking at his son “but you said the other night why can’t they put TV shows with white people?” then the dad responds with “aw yes we say that but it doesn’t mean anything were really happy”. As you can see the dad denies his own opinion once the camera is on him, this is one of the weaknesses white people show throughout the
