On the surface, Truman Burbank's life seems perfectly average. He has a dull desk job, a safe marriage and drinks beer at the weekend. But he's bored and longs for something more. However, without realising Truman has been living a lie; he's actually the unwitting star of a hugely popular TV show, his every move is being recorded, and those around him are all really actors. As Truman's suspicions begin to be raised, the show's creators scramble to keep the truth from him as he sets out on a dangerous path towards his freedom. A fascinating, existential satire that also works as sheer entertainment and a remarkable portrait of reality television taken to its logical conclusion.
