    01. Truman had no idea that his life was contrived.

    02. He did not know that his wife (Laura Linney) was just an actress playing his wife on the show.

    03. The idea that everything he did was being watched by an audience for entertainment is very disturbing.

    04. Exploitation at the expense of another human being's privacy, at the expense of finding opportunities for real love & meaning in his life, was sick. He was basically held captive in order to play a part in a made-up world.

    Good Luck & Best of Viewing!

    Probably a comment on today's society. CCTV cameras, reality shows, everyone wanting 5 minutes of fame and then the realisation that there is more to life. We want real not fake.

    The modern day society when you are basically watched all the time.
