"Was nothing real?" -Truman
"You were, Truman." -Christophe
Truman's best friend would suggest that Truman was real, but to what extent? Sure, the emotions he felt were real emotions. However, he did not control his future. The director of the show ultimately controlled his life. Of course, this all changes when he figures out that he is being watched.
The director said, "We accept the world that we are presented." I think that perhaps this is true until we realize that we are capable of change. Truman accepted his world until he realized that there was more to the world that he had been living in. I think Truman could be liked to a child, we are naive and think that the world is as it is. Then we grow up and realize that we are capable of change. If people always accepted the world for what it was then society would not have changed so drastically over the years. This is most evident in our growth of technology.
Just a thought: Would you want to live a life like Truman? It seems a good life, in the sense that everything is almost perfect..
But I would not want that life. If everything were always perfect would we really appreciate it? I think you have to understand the bad in order to appreciate the good.
