The Truman Show Movie Study Guide
The Truman Show is a satirical science fiction film about a man whose entire world is a TV show. Truman doesn’t know it, but his entire life – his wife, his best friend, his job – is all part of a staged set in his created world of Seahaven. The show is broadcast 24/7 around the globe, with fans addicted to the show and the “innocence” of Truman.
