Oscilloscope Laboratories has released a trailer for Italian director Matteo Garrone's latest project, Reality (2012), starring Aniello Arena, Loredana Simioli and Nando Paone. The film will open in select theaters across the United States on March 15th.
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.
Note: Director Garrone's previous film, the controversial Gomorrah, is available on Blu-ray via the Criterion Collection. See our listing and review here.
