Tobey Maguire ("Spider-Man 3," "The Good German"), Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Reese Witherspoon ("Walk the Line," "Legally Blonde"), Academy Award-nominee and Emmy-winner William H. Macy ("Fargo," "Wild Hogs") and Golden Globe-nominee Jeff Daniels ("The Lookout," "Good Night, and Good Luck") star in this modern day fairy tale where an entire fictional town is granted a chance to experience the comedies and dangers of real life when two late 20th Century teenagers accidentally bring living color to a mysterious suburb trapped in a black-and-white '50s utopia--and set off a revolution. This film was written, produced, and directed by Academy Award-nominee Gary Ross ("Seabiscuit," "Big").
