The Truman Show
TRUMAN drops the handle as if his hand has been burned. He looks all about him.
You can speak. I can hear you.
Truman takes a moment to overcome his fear and astonishment.
Who are you?
I'm the creator.
Truman looks up to the "heavens."
The creator of what?
A show that gives hope and joy and inspiration to millions.
A show. Then who am I?
You're the star.
Truman struggles to take it all in.
Nothing was real?
Nothing was real. That's what made you so good to watch.
Truman takes out the drenched picture of Sylvia, recalling her words at the beach.
“The eyes are everywhere."
You can leave if you want. I won't try to stop you. But you won't survive out there. You don't know what to do, where to go.
A wave of doubt washes over Truman's face.
(referring to the photo)
I have a map.
Truman, I've watched you your whole life. I saw you take your first step, your first word, your first kiss. I know you better than you know yourself. You're not going to walk out that door.
You never had a camera in my head.
