About the Movie
He's the star of the show--but he doesn't know. Jim Carrey wowed critics and audiences alike as unwitting Truman Burbank in this marvel of a movie from director Peter Weir (Witness, Dead Poets Society) about a man whose life is a nonstop TV show. Truman doesn't realize that his quaint hometown is a giant studio set run by a visionary producer/director/creator (Ed Harris), that folks living and working there are Hollywood actors, that even his incessantly bubbly wife is a contract player. Gradually, Truman gets wise. And what he does about his discovery will have you laughing, crying and cheering like few film stories ever have.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The Truman Show finds a near-miraculous balance of humor and feeling in the keen intelligence of the script by Andrew Niccol and the prodigal inventiveness of Dead Poets Society director Peter Weir at his very best.
Fresh: The Truman Show will probably be the most thought-provoking "big" movie to come out this summer, and that says a whole lot more about other movies than it does about this one. You should, however, see it for Carrey's newly unveiled charms.
Fresh: Carrey is on his mettle, but you wonder why thirty years of close observation have made Truman so funny; shouldn't he be a regular guy gone mad?
Fresh: It's a satire/comedy/fantasy about the future of television and the people caught in its omnipresent electronic net: a supremely intelligent jape about a man named Truman Burbank.
One of my all-time favorite films.
The Truman Show is something I saw all the way back in fifth grade. It is one of the few movies that made me cry as a child and as an adult. It has possibly the most beautiful soundtrack in the last 15 years, and is also probably the most wonderful work of psychoanalytic fiction I've ever seen on the big screen. If you have not seen it, please take the time to enjoy it at least once. It is something that defies normal explanation, but transcends normal expectation as well.
