In this movie, Truman is a man whose life is a fake one... The place he lives is in fact a big studio with hidden cameras everywhere, and all his friends and people around him, are actors who play their roles in the most popular TV-series in the world: The Truman Show. Truman thinks that he is an ordinary man with an ordinary life and has no idea about how he is exploited. Until one day... he finds out everything. Will he react? Written by

Paramount had originally scheduled the film for release on November 14, 1997. It was delayed to the summer of 1998, allowing for more time in post-production and to not take away from its awards chances for Titanic (1997). See more »
When it begins to rain on Truman on the beach, the single spray head follows him as he runs around. It would take at least 8 or 10 seconds for the rain to reach Truman, assuming the shower heads were up in the sky far enough to not be visible. The shower heads follow him too quickly and appear to be only a few feet above the view of the camera See more »
We've become bored with watching actors give us phony emotions. We are tired of pyrotechnics and special effects. While the world he inhabits is, in some respects, counterfeit, there's nothing fake about Truman himself. No scripts, no cue cards. It isn't always Shakespeare, but it's genuine. It's a life.

"The Truman Show" owes a lot to the direction of Peter Weir. Weir
refuses to pump out the movies in a search for extra dollars. Instead
he chooses wisely and directs brilliantly. Just by looking at a list of
his movies will surprise and even amaze you. So as you would imagine
"The Truman Show" is another success.
Truman Burbank has the perfect life, or so he thought until finally his
life long suspicions about his world begin to unravel. Even though the
idea for Truman is not totally original, it is thought provoking enough
and allows the audience to wonder, what if? If you think this couldn't
happen, just look back over the years at the stupidity of the human
race and think again.
Jim Carrey once again nails his role, as do the entire cast. It is rare
he fails to perform at a level that perfectly complements the movie and
its genre. This is something he does not receive enough credit for.
Acting for a comical role or a more dramatic role requires no less
effort for the performance to be spot on.
