Pleasantville

Everything turns to colour, Bud convinces the people of Pleasantville that change is a normal part of life and all is well. He returns home, but Jennifer stays in Pleasantville to go to college. Ultimately, nothing concrete is resolved for their parents, since the mother's love interest (Jeff Daniels) is substituted for her husband (William H. Macy) at the very last as the camera cuts back and forth in the final seconds of the shot.

Factual error: When Reese Witherspoon's character is sitting at the desk reading, there is a cheerleading trophy and the cheerleader on it is wearing a mini skirt, - they didn't have mini skirts on the cheerleading outfits then. (01:08:20)

Question: I'm sure I'm missing something, but the ending didn't quite gel with me. I didn't get the significance of George Parker becoming Bill Johnson off-screen. Was it that given the fictional nature of the world/show, they were both different sides of the same person, or what? (01:51:45)

Chosen answer: I agree. I think there are a couple ways you could interpret this, but I took it to mean that Bill Johnson essentially became the new man in Betty Parker's life and that the show would continue reflecting this change.
