INTRO:

In the film the truman show directed by peter weir, weir introduces truman as an important charecter in the film, and uses film tecniques to illustrate trumans importance and how he impacted the audience. Truman was important to the text, as he is a very interesting charecter that produces an emotional response in the audience throughout the film as he embarks on his journey for truth, and steps out of his reality. Weir illustrates this in the beginning of the film, where he highlights trumans charecter and curiosity, yet oblivion to what is going on, which is interesting to the audience, as we want to see what will happen as we like truman yet feel sorry for him. In the turning point weir then illustrates how truman is figuring out the truth, and decides to embark on his journey for truth, which makes the audience interested, and admire him. At the closing scene, weir highlights trumans courage as he steps out of his cave for the final time, making the audience feel inspired. Truman in his fake world can be related to platos allegory of the cave, as truman has accepted his reality like the prisoners at the start, and slowly begins to question his reality around him, and act on it, despite what his society thinks. Truman is an important charecter, because he provides an interesting plot, and the audience is intrigued to what truman will do in this film.

In the beginning of the film, weir illustrates trumans importance, and how he influences us to question our own realities. Weir effectivly conveys this by revealing trumans true charecter, in the natural echoey bathroom. In the bathroom, there are no lights, and its echoey, while truman is having a speech in the mirror about sacrificing himself so other can live. This is illustrating to us an as audience how truman is authentic, and a truthful man, which we can see through the bathroom as well, with the natural lighting- there is no fakeness here. This influences us as an audience, as we realise that truman is a normal man who hasn't questioned his reality, that we haven't questioned our own realities either, so truman is beginning to influence us already. Weir continues to develop trumans importance in the film, and highlight the severity of trumans situation when a black stage light falls from the sky in the midst of his 'perfect' bright and saturated world, right in front of truman. We see truman go over to it, curious as to what it is. Weir is illustrating here how truman is beginning to develop curiosity for the reality he was born into, and he's also highlighting the abnormal and severe situation truman is in, as a falling stage light only emphaised trumans curiosity, rather than made him realise what a fake world he was in. Truman has influenced us as an audience to have sympathy for him, because he has no idea of the world he is in, and we feel almost guilty that we are apart of the audience watcing him. Truman is important in the beginning, because he also illustrates, through his ignorance, how important it is to question your realities, and not to ignore any red flags, he's finding his truth but also teaching an audience to question your realities. We can see that truman has accepted his reality for so long that he is like platos prisoners, shackled and only seeing life from inside of his cave. Truman has created these simmulations in his head for so long, that he's accepted his relaity for so long that these simmulations seem normal to him when in fact- they are distorted and a fake version of reality. Truman illustrates, through his ignorance how important it is to question you reality, and makes us as an audience realise that we should do this. 

In the turning point of the film, Weir illustrates how not only is questionig your reality important, but having the courage to create your own reality is important. He does this through showing how truman

Ok - what you have done here is answering the question fine! You discuss how it both influences our emotions and why, and also influences how we think about the ideas in the text. “he influences us to question our own realities.” “which makes the audience interested, and admire him.” - what is it that youa are unsure about?
