The storm calms, and Truman stands in silent awe as he takes stock of what he’s seeing: It’s all true. Every one of his suspicions was right.
He looks over and sees a door in the wall, marked EXIT.
The way Truman feels in that moment is the way I felt when I made the decision to convert, and undoubtedly how many other potential converts feel as well. It’s difficult enough to get to the point that you figure out that you’re in a dome and find the door — and then, as you stand in front of it, you realize that your problems are just beginning. As the story draws to a close in The Truman Show, it is clear that Truman will now face a whole host of daunting challenges; the screenwriters don’t insult the audience by pretending that walking out of a false life and into reality would be an easy step to make. And yet it is a happy ending, despite the hardships to come. I don’t think a single person in the audience thought that it was depressing that Truman finally found that door — and wouldn’t have even if there had been hints that something terrible would happen to him on the other side — because life lived without the truth is no life at all.
