Reality (2023, D: Satter) S: Sydney Sweeney



The truth cannot be redacted. The HBO Original film #Reality is coming to Max on May 29.

On June 3, 2017, 25-year-old Reality Winner (Sydney Sweeney) returned from running errands to find two FBI agents at her home in Augusta, Georgia. Over the next two hours, the Air Force veteran and yoga instructor is questioned on her involvement in the leaking of classified documents about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. elections. Don't miss the riveting film based on FBI transcripts.

I don't follow politics or the political stories that closely but this was riveting probably since I had no idea about the real life story.

Josh Hamilton was really good in this.

Glad to see a rare HBO films movie since they don't make as many as they did in the past.

Reality Winner is a strange name and thought maybe it was a code name to protect the real person.

This wasn't bad for a (mostly) single location movie. Sydney does a good job as Reality as the truth gets slowly uncovered as two FBI agents interrogate her. It's not flashy but does create a bit of tension.

Sweeney was great in this. These are the types of roles she needs to start locking down.

Plus I should add the movie is barely over 80 mins, so it's not a time suck.

I heard it was based on a play so the one central location works for this.

Hamilton with him clearing his throat all the time got on my nerves but it was a realistic performance.
