This was almost exactly the way I remembered it. Kind of good. Kind of eh.
Take Ed Harris out of the equation and his stupid hat and this movie would have been better.
I showed this to my class because the idea of a completely controlled society was reminiscent of two recent Read Alouds in class - The Giver and City of Ember.
If I only had one more month of school, maybe I could have read 1984 to them! Or maybe not.
My class really liked this even though they were a bit confused by it at times. Some of them kept thinking that Truman was real - they had a difficult time grasping that everyone besides Jim Carrey were actors playing actors and that Jim Carrey was an actor playing a non-actor.
The official stamp of approval came from Girl Who Loves Sparkly Clothes but Hates Hillary Clinton who deemed the movie good.
Directed by Peter Weir
