From acclaimed director Matteo Garrone, Reality
is a darkly comic look at Luciano, a charming and
affable fishmonger whose unexpected and sudden
obsession with being a contestant on the reality
show “Big Brother” leads him down a rabbit hole
of skewed perceptions and paranoia. So overcome
by his dream of being on reality TV, Luciano’s own
reality spins out of control, making for one of the
most compelling tragicomic character studies since
Scorsese’s The King of Comedy
. The film won the Grand Prix at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival.
