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.

It's not an 18. Nice to know Google makes mistakes. But anyway it's a great film about identity, alienation, about growing up, about our post-modern world. And it is very funny. The two security guards are the best!

This film by the fantastic Peter Weir is available for £3.99 in 4K on iTunes but UK Google customers are trapped in a world where it can only be viewed in HD. Will we be freed one day to enjoy my favourite Jim Carrey performance in 4K or do we have to escape to the other provider to see this world in more clarity. ** deducted as it isn't in 4K.

There is a scene though that I didn't like that much - guess there's an 18 rating for a good reason! (Though on DVD it's a 15 :/ )
