When Hannah Shaw-Williams* saw Matteo Garrone‘s Reality at the London Film Festival last year she described it like this:
Reality, which starts out as a simple story of a man auditioning for a place in the Italian Big Brotherhouse, is definitely the most impressive film that I’ve seen at the festival so far… walks the line between charmingly sweet and slightly uncomfortable, but walks it well and [lead character] Luciano’s descent into a skewed reality is fascinating to watch.
I think I can see what she meant by ‘skewed reality’ from just this trailer.
Reality is released in the UK on march 22nd. I’m fascinated and can’t wait to see the whole thing.
