Brief Synopsis

The film that made critics sit up and take notice of Jim Carrey's dramatic chops, the legendary funnyman is Truman Burbank in "The Truman Show," director Peter Weir's satirical look at a man raised from infancy to adulthood in front of television cameras. Unbeknownst to him, Carrey lives in a bubble where actors have played his family and cameras have followed his every move since the day he was born. When the seams in this make-believe world begin to split and he realizes his whole life is a lie, it leads to a breakdown - and a famous breakout. The 1998 film - Oscar-nominated for Best Screenplay, Director and Supporting Actor -co-stars Laura Linney and Ed Harris. .
