The Truman Show
A spectacularly original and extremely entertaining film “The Truman Show” directed by Peter Weir (1998) where 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. 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.
In this film Truman suffers the loss of his father from a boat accident in his early child hood, and has blamed himself ever since. Without knowing it was all a complete set up Truman carries on with his life like a normal human being not knowing that his father was still out there playing the role of a homeless man. Throughout this film many emotional and dramatic scenes happen.
One positive aspect of this film is that it had many great ideas and that it entertained the audience and from the public views it was an extremely high rated really success in the film category in the year 1998. Unfortunately on the other hand the negative aspects of this film are that it has very boring execution and personally were quite hard to understand, apart from that it is a great movie and I would recommend it to others without a doubt.
This film stars the very famous actor Jim Carrey born 1962, who is a very famous Canadian/American actor and comedian, who plays the role of Truman Burbank along side with Laura Linney born1964 in the New York City who plays the roll of Meryl Burbank (Trumans wife) also Hannah Gill another few main characters such as, Noah Emmerich (the best friend Marlon) also born in New York he another successful actor who played a part in the movie “Beautiful Girls” in 1996.
Noah also directed the wrote and directed the award winning short film called “The painter”. Natascha McElhone (Lauren/Sylivia) who has been acting since 1991 rose in Hampstead London, England she has also starred any many other short television episodes. And many better-known actors who play parts in this fantastic film created by Peter Weir. Overall, The Truman Show is one of the coolest and interesting films to come out of Hollywood.
Jim Carrey shows that he is not just a man of a million faces, but a talented actor who could go down as one of the best. Andrew Niccol is responsible for the screenplay and Peter Weir pulled it off to perfection. The Truman Show is a must see for anyone who likes movies in general because they will be thoroughly impressed by this creative film.
