Today, we’re going to review The Truman Show which is one of the few movies that really stands out when you read the plot or see a trailer. It is a must see by any/all movie goers.
The film consists of Jim Carrey’s character, Truman Burbank, living out his life as an average Joe in a small town. He has lived in this town his entire life and has known most of his friends for almost that same amount. The reason for this is because he is actually the star of a TV show apply called The Truman Show. This show has its own channel and is on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It all started when he is adopted by a company for this very idea.
He has lived his entire life on the show and until now, has been completely unaware of it. He slowly starts realizing the coincidences of every-day life when a piece of the studio falls from the sky right in front of him. After partially figuring out what is going on, he attempts to escape from his caged life to find out what or who he truly is. Meanwhile, the creator of the show, Christof, tries to stop him by all means necessary even if that means Truman might be harmed or even killed.
The film draws you in and sort of makes you choose sides. You can either choose the side of Christof which means Truman will never know who he really is and the show will go on or you could choose the side of Truman himself which would lead to him leaving his glass bubble town and discovering the real world for the very first time.
Movie Rating: 6 out of 10. This would have been higher if the character besides Truman and Christof had been bigger and better actors.
Family Rating: This movie is fine to watch with the family. The language, if any, is mild at worst. No nudity or violence.
