Synopsis

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. One day, by chance, Truman discovers he's been living a lie; he's actually the unwitting star of a hugely popular TV show and those around him are all really actors. After the initial shock, he's determined to beat the show's creators at their own game and gain his freedom. A fascinating, existential satire that also works as sheer entertainment.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
