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

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
