Learning your entire reality is a carefully constructed lie would be a moment of crisis and potential awakening for anyone, but learning that lie has been constructed for the entertainment of an entire country makes it all the more overwhelming. That is precisely what happens to Truman (Jim Carrey) when the meticulously designed reality show that forms his life beings to fall apart, not only because of Truman’s increasing awareness, but also because of the moral awakening of several people who had helped delude him. Peter Weir’s dark comedy also serves as a wakeup call to the audience, asking us to consider the ways we have enabled the exploitation of others for corporate profit and our own entertainment, reminding us through Truman’s journey there is a greater reality worth seeking.
