The Truman Show was be on 1998, and the director is Peter Weir. It is a
very classic film.
In this film, Truman’s life was made into a reality TV show. Even his parents, wife and friends were actors. Finally, he realized it and succeeded in leaving the style of life.
For one thing, the story is not only different but also very novel. It seems strange and misty at the beginning, which carries a foreshadowing of what is to follow later on in this story. Who is Truman and what is going to tell us? However when we know what happened to Truman, we are shocked by that creative spot. Then we are wandering what his pursuit for. The director seizes we audiences’ curiosity perfectly. For another, its language is very humorous. For example, ”Good morning! And in case I don’t see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night! ” .This movie impresses me deeply and I think it is very meaningful. On the one hand, though Truman lived in a peaceful world, he refused to accept that style of life, which was not managed by himself. He, including us, can not bear being tricked and controlled. I wander if everyone has the same courage to expose the life filled with lie? On the other hand, the media plays a important role in our daily life. But can you imagine that you are a leading actor in a reality TV show one day? Nobody wants to be a victim of media. This movie is a good sarcasm of modern media. It tells us not to rely on media everywhere and anytime, and sometimes we should have our own judgments.
In a word, it is more wonderful for us to direct our own life .It may be not peaceful enough, but it has the freedom our pursuit for.
