The Truman Show is one of my favorite movies.
There is a line at the end of the movie that had me in tears the first time I watched it.
Truman after living in a made-up existence, that he is not conscious of, tries to escape his world by conquering his fear of the water and sailing away…only to hit a wall. His whole reality is shattered, he breaks down unable to comprehend what is happening to him. A voice talks to him and he answers with this line that made me cry..” Was nothing real?”
I identity with Truman ,in a way, lost in religious dogma and for many years accepting all that was associated with that dogma, when reality hit, I asked the same question, ” Was nothing real?” My world view was shattered on the ground, I had to find courage to “sail” to new places and reinvent myself.
