The Truman Show (1998)

An insurance salesman/adjuster discovers his entire life is actually a T.V. show. (IMDb)

A compelling intro here (with the beginning of a great score) sets up a fascinating premise and an instantly endearing lead: A man born into a TV show, unknowingly living a fabricated life. His journey of self-discovery is as tragic as it is thrilling, as his whole world turns against him in his attempts to escape, and while the plot is not without its holes (like a lack of moral questioning), it has more than enough affecting moments (“The last thing I would ever do…”) to make up for them.
