    I'm not sure why but when I try and log in to sign up it tells me I have to use my work email instead of personal one, I don't get technology 🤣

    The Truman Show
    Thank you @Gemma and @TheMix for creating another wonderful mix movie night. I got to say these have been super super brilliant and I also really loved The Truman Show, it was pretty good and better than what I expected the movie to turn out like. <3. A very insightful film which looks at the themes of reality and free will x.

    I loved the comedic moments. It's a thought-provoking film that raises intriguing questions about reality. Seeing Truman struggling at sea made me worried about whether he would survive but when he did I was blown away. The film was very entertaining and I'm happy he got his freedom. Just fantastic.

    Lovely to hear your thoughts on this @Amy22 and @IsThisJustFantasy! It definitely is thought-provoking and definitely leaves you questioning reality. I feel like it's quite a timeless film as it now resonates with our current age of live streams and social media making ordinary people feel as if they're making their own reality TV show. I also love the final segment of the film - seeing Truman willing to go into the unknown, going against the created existence, and being okay with the dangers of what's out there. :)

    @Gemma i agree and I think Truman was brave to go into the unknown. I think starting over after years of living in a reality TV show can be difficult, and I think Truman knew this and he’s very resilient for accepting that and going after his reality without allowing his created existence to pull him back.

    100% agree with you there @IsThisJustFantasy! He definitely overcame the odds and was very brave to make that move. :)
