Publisher's Description

A thought-provoking story about a real man trapped in unreality.


Overview


He s the star of the nation s most popular TV show but he doesn t even know it. Meet Truman, the first baby adopted by a corporation and raised on live TV. His hometown is a massive studio. His friends, family, and wife are all actors. Truman has no idea that his life is all scripted, until one day he begins to piece it all together. And that s when The Truman Show begins.


This study will help you discuss the themes and messages of The Truman Show. When does our voyeurism and hunger for reality TV go too far? Why are people controlled by fear? What is true freedom?
