Film and Theology | The Truman Show

We accept the reality of the world with which we’re presented. It’s as simple as that. – Christof in The Truman Show

Why do movies about escaping from an illusory universe, of recapturing the humanity of free will, seem to resonate with us so much? Truman Burbank lives in a world that revolves around him. His relationships are fake, his work is not real, and his life is on display for millions to watch. He is the star of a reality TV show, The Truman Show. There’s just one thing, he doesn’t know. Ever since he was born his every move has been scrutinized by his audience without his knowledge. As he grows older he starts to question the reality around him and finds that he wants to break away from his every day existence. Join us Friday night, October 6th, as we watch and discuss Peter Weir’s The Truman Show.

The Truman Show is rated PG for “thematic elements and mild language,” and childcare will not be provided. Free popcorn, candy, and coke will be on hand so don’t miss the next Film and Theology!
