The Truman Show and Plato

I just started reading a book of classic essays today... starting with the one by Plato called "Allegory of the Cave" about men in a cave who saw only shadows and fancied that the shadows were the true forms, not just shadows. And one quotable quote:

"Yes, he said, I think that he would rather suffer anything than entertain these false notions and live in this miserable manner."

It immediately made me think of the movie "The Truman Show." That movie illustrated that quote.
