THE TRU­MAN SHOW: RE­AL­ITY BITES

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Film -

This oddly pre­scient 1998 film showed a young man who learns that his en­tire life was a TV show. The ul­ti­mate re­al­ity star (played by Jim Carey) found re­demp­tion when he took his first steps to­wards the real world. But what hap­pened next? Did he meet his first love again? Did he make it to Fiji? Did he em­brace his life as a celebrity? Did he sue the show’s pro­ducer (Christof, played by Ed Har­ris)? The fur­ther ad­ven­tures of Tru­man Bur­bank would be a good op­por­tu­nity to delve fur­ther into the is­sues raised by Peter Weir’s film.
