  • Comic actor Jim Carrey plays it (mostly) straight for this smart satire from director Peter Weir (DEAD POETS SOCIETY). The life of Truman Burbank (Carrey) has been broadcast around the world with tremendous success since the day he was born. A star for the mere fact that he exists, Truman has no idea that there are cameras in every corner of his world. But soon, cracks begin to show in the constructed world, and Truman questions his existence while everyone around him is in on the joke. Weir directs a fine cast, including Laura Linney as Truman's wife and Ed Harris as the show's director. Screenwriter Andrew Niccol also added interesting twists to the scripts for S1M0NE and GATTACA.

    4 stars out of 5 -- "1998's ingenious THE TRUMAN SHOW is a remarkable exercise in pre-emptively satirizing the reality TV phenomenon that it surely helped to inspire."
    Uncut

    "[D]ramatic and emotional....Truman Burbank is a touchingly gallant creating, an unwitting Odysseus on an odyssey he can't fathom."
    Wall Street Journal
