The Truman Show
1998
*****
Director: Peter Weir
Cast: Jim Carrey, Laura Linney, Natascha McElhone, Ed Harris, Noah Emmerich

A brilliant dark comedy about a man who discovers that his entire life has been a scripted 24h reality soap. Andrew Niccol’s script is topical and smart as hell, and Peter Weir has visualised the film to perfection. Jim Carrey gives one of his most likeable performances as the tragic title character.
