The American Film Summer screenings at Kasárna Karlín kicks off with the comedy The Truman Show. comedy. Since birth, a big fat lie defines the well-organized but humdrum life of the kind-hearted insurance salesman and ambitious explorer, Truman Burbank. Utterly unaware of the thousands of cleverly hidden cameras watching his every move, for nearly three decades, Truman’s entire existence pivots around the will and the wild imagination of the ruthlessly manipulative television producer, Christof. As a result, Truman’s picturesque neighborhood with the manicured lawns and perfect neighbors is nothing but an elaborate state-of-the-art set, and the only truth he knows is what the worldwide television network and its deep financial interests dictate. One day, Truman accidentally bumps into a catering area backstage and gets suspicious. Eventually, he plans his escape. Starring Jim Carrey. Directed by Peter Weir.
