Feelings after watching"The Trueman Show"
"I just finished watching the movie " The Trueman Show",acted by Jim Carrey .
'What a movie!' , I couldn't help saying that when finshed that movie.
It talks about a show created by a director. He selected a baby and put him into a world he had created for him. In that world, everything was nice, people were friendly though they were all actors and actresses ,which means they were all fake. The boy was named' Trueman'. Since Trueman was born, he was left in that artifical island. Then people in the real world watched this 'Trueman Show' everyday. The director designed everything for trueman, his school, his friends, his fake parents, his fake wife...everything. He wanted to creat a person and world without worries but he was wrong. Trueman one day sensed the weird around him: everyday at the same time same place happened the same thing, people spoke the same thing with the same expression, no way!
He tried to run away but failed. Troubles seemed to be his twin brothers whenever he intended to escape from the island. Accidents, fires, traffic jams...Finally , he managed to escape from the cam and got a boat. Despite the seasick, he got on the boat and went on sailing. The director paniced while they found trueman was away. He set storms intending to stop Trueman but failed. Trueman was determined to have a true life. He kept sailing and sailing.
Trueman's boat stopped when it hit something. It was the end of the island. It was a wall colored like the sky. Trueman raised his head and he found out everything in the sky was painted. The sky, the clouds, the sea, everything was painted.
He found a 'Exit' button on the sky-blue wall, while trying to click it, he heard the director's voice from the sky." Trueman, the outside world has no lelies than this one I created for you. You belong here, I created the perfect world for you. " Trueman hesitated, yet clicked the button.
The show was over after more than 20 years and Trueman became a real true man when he dared to lose somehting, conquer somthing and face to something. That's how we all became a true person.
I can never forget the 'sky wall' and the director's God-like voice came from the unknown place. It reminds me so much of the world we are living in. Somehow we are all in a 'Trueman' world. Parents wanna control us, we work everyday following a certain routine. We dare not to lose the fortune we've gained and we lose more: hapiness, trust , friendship, health...
It was said that the real hapineis the balance of your heart. A friend told me if something is a little risky ,that means it's worthy to do it.
A lot of students lost the chances to follow their dreams due to the so called' shoulds' people had arranged for them , then they kept copying other people's lives and they lost their own.Guewhat happened in the end? You never have lived in this world!
Come on my friends, we only live once, if you have a dream, seize it!If the world world wants to go left and you feel like going right, go right, you don't have to follow, just go, it's very easy..."。
