We dive into our second Time Travel episode with a double-dose of 50's nostalgia: Frances Ford Coppola'sPeggy Sue Got Married, and Gary Ross' Pleasantville. Now if you only watched the trailers, these movies might seem like polar opposites, with Peggy Sue seemingly wanting to glorify the past as Pleasantville sets out to mock it. But MG argues that both films wildly subvert these expectations, and each features far deeper character stories than almost any other entry in the genre. So buckle yourself into the way-back machine and get ready for some social commentary, poodle skirts, and a breakout performance from a very young (and very weird) Nicholas Cage!
