- Synopsis / Plot
- He's the star of the show - but he doesn't know it! Jim Carey plays unwitting Truman Burbank, an ordinary man in a not-so-ordinary life. From the time he was born to the present, Truman's entire life has been broadcast live on national TV. Truman doesn't realize that his quaint hometown is actually a giant studio set - big enough to be seen from space - and that the folks living and working there are Hollywood actors. Even Truman's incessantly bubbly wife is a contract player. Gradually, Truman gets wise. And what he does about his discovery will have you laughing, crying and cheering as he finds his way to the truth.
