The Truman Show (5-Jun-1998)

Director: Peter Weir

Writer: Andrew Niccol

Keywords: Drama

An unexpected dramatic turn for Jim Carrey, who plays the unwitting star of the full-time TV show that has documented his life since birth. Reality TV before the term was in use, Truman's life is a thin beach-community fantasy where all the people he has grown up talk into their wrists, the show's producer looks on the boy as a god, and Philip Glass provides a continuous soundtrack.
