HOT 4K NEWS
AFTER getting a 4K Ultra HD release on digital platforms in 2021, Peter Weir’s 1990s classic “The Truman Show” gets a physical 4K disc release for its 25th anniversary and released on America’s birthday – July 4.
Starring the incomparable Jim Carrey, “The Truman Show” was a box office and critical success, earning over $264 million worldwide and a 95 percent fresh critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Nominated for three Academy Awards, Best Director (Weir), Best Supporting Actor (Ed Harris) and Best Screenplay (Andrew Niccol), “The Truman Show” is both wildly entertaining and a complex exploration of media consumption, surveillance, and reality TV that was ahead of its time and even more relevant today.
Carrey stars as Truman Burbank, a man whose life is a nonstop TV show. Truman doesn't realize that his quaint hometown is a giant studio set run by a visionary creator (Ed Harris), that folks living and working there are Hollywood actors, and that even his incessantly bubbly wife (Laura Linney) is a contract player. Gradually, Truman gets wise, and his response leaves viewers laughing, crying, and cheering like few films ever have.
