Screening of Reality at the Indiana University Cinema

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. (2K DCP presentation)
