Peter Weir's 1998 film The Truman show can be read as an allegory for the present. Like the fictional town of Seahaven, our own world is experiencing a series of ruptures, like the recession of 2008, the Arab Spring, the killings of young black men by police and our increasing awareness of them, like Brexit and the rise of political outsiders movements of Sanders and Trump. Society at large is like Truman, laboring under a system that is ridiculous. Society, like Truman, is trying to wake itself and stumbling under the pain of doing so.
