PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product introduces the movie, The Truman Show, by recounting the key details of Plato's Allegory of the Cave. The story is adapted and condensed for the students. I have also included a video link to the EDTed Talk video that explains the allegory. The story will provide a paradigm by which to view the film.

After the introduction using Plato's Allegory of the Cave, the students will then watch the film and answer 17-questions. After the film, the students are asked to make 3 specific connections to the Allegory of the Cave and the Truman Show.

The movie is available on Netflix!
