Consider the mytholgoical undertones of the story in relation to the Garden of Eden Gnostic viewpoint: a "true man" is held prisoner in a fake world designed by a sort of demiurgic ruler (Ed Harris' Christof). It's only through gaining insight (gnosis) and challenging this imposed reality that Truman is able to escape it and truly be free.
