Never are they shying back from perversely intruding into personal matters, breaking taboos and ethic restrictions, only for the fast buck and higher ratings. The film also shows that much of what we take for granted could turn out to be completely fabricated because sometimes we simply do not have real, tangible evidence for things we learn. On top of all that, the movie is also quite remarkable because for the first time it presents us master comedian Jim Carrey in a very dimensional and, most importantly, highly dramatic role that finally gives the actor the chance to put the wide variety of his skills on display.
A Jim Carrey plays Truman Burbank, a man who lives in a perfect world with a perfect job and a perfect wife. Little does he know that his life is the center of a 24 hour widely popular television show known as The Truman Show.

|Parents say||Peter Weir's film about a young man who's life is highly publicized and dissected before the eyes of a huge TV audience had been the box-office sensation of and gave rise to what we now call "Reality Television.

He is surrounded by actors in one huge dome studio and is constantly watched by a variety of cameras, which are hidden throughout the city.
Jim Carrey, known mostly for his rubber faced gags and his talking rear end, takes a surprising and effective turn to drama as Truman, similar to how Robin Williams has succeeded in the last decade.
Carrey is so believable and likeable that you feel shame for his character and cheer him on during the film.
He also uses humor to his advantage, making The Truman Show even more entertaining. Ed Harris gives one of his best performances, as well, as the creator of The Truman Show, who is extremely picky about using the right cameras, the right actors, and the right scenery.
Harris adds a powerful god like appearance to the movie as his obsession towards the show and Truman's life for over thirty years makes him a creepy villain unlike the average "bad guy" of current movies. Peter Weir masterfully directs The Truman Show using unordinary camera angles to emphasize that the cameras are watching Truman no matter where he goes.
Weir also creates a magnificent set from an elaborate city to a sea that never seems to end. He cleverly displays advertisements in random places and errors of the show's production a studio light falls from the sky reminding the viewer that it is live television and some faults will occur.
Throughout the movie he asks the viewer whether the city should continue to entertain the world or if it should halt for the sake of one innocent, unknowing man.

Awards.5/5(1). Thankfully, The Truman Show is done right, mostly. In case you live under a rock, you know that this is the story of a man (Carrey) who slowly discovers his life is a sham, a cradle-to-grave story that's been televised to the world for 30 years.
