Italian label 01 Distribution will release on Blu-ray director Matteo Garrone's Reality (2012), starring Aniello Arena, Loredana Simioli and Nando Paone. The preliminary release date set by 01 Distribution is March 20th.
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.
In the U.S., Oscilloscope Laboratories is in charge with the film's theatrical distribution.
Note: Director Garrone's previous film, the controversial Gomorrah, is available on Blu-ray via the Criterion Collection. See our listing and review here.
