Just to add a clip on this excellent film to demonstrate how it is.

The smile is one Truman's traits about his personality. It shows how much of a nice guy he is and how his positivity is always glowing.

The film has an outstanding soundtrack, which add a nice tone to the movie. My personal favorite is Raising the Sail by Philip Glass. Very beautiful sound to the tune and quite a reflective mood to it.

This is by far my all time favorite movie. Reasons for it being good are numerous. First it has one of my favorite actors Jim Carrey who portrays the character Truman Burbank. He does a fantastic job portraying an unaware man of his surroundings, and when he discovers his world is not real Carrey is able to show Truman as a desperate man with the conflicting thought of whether he should do something about his situation. I also love how he's such an all around great man who is kind hearted. The film is directed by Peter Weir who also made a Dead Poet's Society. He's a really good director you should check him out. The film has a lot of themes about religion, reality, free will, and whether or not you would live in a lie or the truth even if the truth wasn't perfect. There is so much meaning in this film that I could write about and all it's qualities. Yet I would rather want you to watch this great film, and see why it is amazing, well- done, and one of the best films made.
