A Film by Matteo Garrone

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 begins to spiral out of control, making for one of the most compelling tragicomic character studies since Scorsese’s The King of Comedy.

"Matteo Garrone follows his crime epic Gomorrah with a comedy about reality TV, and though it hardly rivals the earlier movie in its social complexity, it still offers the spectacle of a vibrant and vividly realized Neapolitan neighborhood."
--J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader

"The opening shot guides us into the absurd merriment of a wedding party, while the ending is lit with a mystifying sense of wonder."
--Anthony Lane, New Yorker

"This is a movie that will reward multiple viewings, from a filmmaker of tremendous technical ability, humor and heart."
--Andrew O'Hehir,

"Mr. Garrone offers a glimpse not only of one man, but also of the soul of a people."
--Manohla Dargis, New York Times
