The Truman Show/Pleasantville Assessment
Imagine that you’re sitting down for nice cup of soy mocha latte with some friends and you’re looking
forward to an intellectually stimulating conversation. Then your friend says, “Hey, I think
_________________ (circle one: The Truman Show/Pleasantville) is a better representation of
_________________ (circle one: Descartes/Plato’s) theories of reality.”
You chuckle slightly to yourself, sipping your latte, thinking how misguided your friend is. At which point
you say, “I’m sorry. I have to disagree with you. ___________________________ (circle the other: The
Truman Show/Pleasantville) is a far superior representation of ___________________________ (circle
the same one: Descartes/Plato’s) theory because…”
Now write your response to your friend as a conversation, both you and your friend trying to prove the
other wrong. It should be a back and forth conversation with evidence from the movies and the
philosophers. Then using your phone, create a film of your conversation, upload it to Drive, and share it
with me.
