A game-changing role for breakout star Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria, The White Lotus), this superb political thriller, keeps viewers on the edge of their seats from the beginning. Based on true events, it will undeniably get you thinking.
Arriving in Australian cinemas on 29 June, Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria, The White Lotus) plays an American veteran turned yoga teacher who would become the first whistleblower of the Trump era, in this tense Berlinale-premiering docudrama Reality.
When a 25-year-old named Reality Winner (Sweeney) pulls into the driveway of her Augusta, Georgia, rental on a Saturday afternoon in June 2017, she is met by two FBI agents in possession of a search warrant.

Seemingly unfazed, Winner hands over her mobile phone, tends to her animals and packs away her perishables before leading Agents Garrick (Josh Hamilton) and Taylor (Marchánt Davis) to a dingy backroom of her house where an hour-long interview unfolds.
Using dialogue taken entirely from the FBI’s actual transcript of the interrogation, debut filmmaker Tina Satter creates a tense thriller that offers an unobstructed view of one of the most polarising political events in recent US history.
Based on true events, the film has been hailed as ‘Uncannily brilliant’ (The Guardian) with Variety describing Sydney Sweeney as “revelatory”.
The movie, which is 83 minutes long, will hit cinemas on 29 June 2023.
