The Truman Show

The Truman Show (1998) is a movie directed by Peter Weir and starring Jim Carrey.

Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers.

The film is set in a hypothetical world where an entire town is dedicated to a continually running television soap opera, where all but one of the participants are actors. Only the central character, Truman Burbank, is unaware that he lives in a constructed reality, for the entertainment of those outside. The film follows his discovery of his situation and his attempts to escape.

The Truman Show can be considered a parody of the soap opera genre and reality television.
