On a Saturday afternoon, in June 2017, Reality Winner, a 25-year-old is confronted at her Georgia home by the FBI. A cryptic conversation begins, and Reality’s life quickly begins to unravel…

Emmy Award nominee Sydney Sweeney stars in the incredible true story of a young woman who stirred up a media storm when she leaked a classified report to the press. Satter creates a tense thriller using dialogue taken directly from the FBI’s transcript of the interrogation – alternately nail-biting and banal, darkly funny and surreal.

Director Tina Satter presents an enlightening snapshot of recent US history that derives all of its tension from the gravity of the situation and uses the orginal interview transcript word-for word. The strong imagery and subtle direction of the actors in this drama delivers an unobstructed view of the events of that day – placing it as a piece of verbatim cinema – before the case polarised the press, the general public and politics places it on the cusp of documentary.


Directed by a woman, written by a woman and starring a significant woman.
