The Truman Show


1. What kind of place does Seahaven appear to be in the opening sequence of scenes? Seahaven appears to be perfect with nothing out of place

The traffic is always the same cars and the same people

The traffic changed to what Truman was doing
The sun set was the same all ways and average most of the time because it was always the same

The sun set the same every night but they could change when the sun went up/down if they wanted to

No one has a difference of opinion of things that they enjoy, everyone likes the same thing

Relationships seem false
