About this 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.

the movies concept is great! everything in Truman Burbank's life is part of a massive tv set. Executive producer Christof orchestrates The Truman Show a live broadcast of Truman's every move captured by hidden cameras. Cristof tries to control Truman's mind, and everyone who watches the show is just invade Truman's privacy including us! it mixes drama at comedy well, the story progress smoothly it has great story and everyone's acting is amazing too, you can tell that they really worked on this and when Truman slowly finds out his reactions gets from calm to insane! you can understand where he's going to when Truman is suspicious he's suspicious when he's confuse he's freaking confuse man! and every reaction when the others trying to stay in character and keeping it as a secret they have a real hard time, when they mess up they messed up real bad and as the story progresses it get better and better the movie has an intriguing concept it execute it well and there are tiny details in this movie only makes it better and my god that ending!! this movie is perfectly done!! not too perfect it's bad, no it's Perfectly done and no movie can recreate the magic. the incredible acting and the AMAZING writing and the directing is also AMAZING! this is on my to recommended watch it!
