The Truman Show. Reminds me of my best friend Forrest. He bought this movie for me for my 21st birthday years ago and I feel in love with the movie almost immediately.
Jim Carrey stars as Truman, a man whose entire life is being broadcast to the masses on TV. The joke is, everyone in his life knows, except for him. The film follows his discovery of his 'trapped' life and how he adapts and eventually over comes the control of everyone else.
