THE TRUMAN SHOW (Theatrical Release USA 1998)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Truman Show—
an inspiring display of originality and creativity—becomes one of Jim Carrey’s better films. One of those ‘sit back and enjoy’ movies, due to its premium script, earns its WOW! KUDOS! as good entertainment for the whole family. Outstanding direction by Director Peter Weir. Watch for Laura Linney and Paul Giamatti in this movie as well as the legendary Composer Philip Glass (who acts as the keyboard artist).
