Film Unit Cinema in the Nelson Mandela Auditorium

Director: Peter Weir Cast: Jim Carrey, Ed Harris Country: US Language: English The movie with a psychiatric disorder named after it: The Truman Show follows the day to day life of Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) in excruciating detail. Over five thousand cameras have been set up to capture his every move; no moment is exclusive to this man, his life shared with millions of people. As Truman uncovers more about the world, he questions the nature of his environment, the people walking by him, the man on the radio. Truman's increasingly demanding questions lead him to do things he otherwise would not. A remarkable commentary on television and conformity, encapsulating consumerism, individualism, and existentialism, this is easily one of Carrey's best roles; The Truman Show demands your time.
