A true story within 'Reality' premise ★★★
It's a miracle "Reality" works at all. Tales of ordinary people consumed by fame-mongering desires (in this case, the dream of joining the cast of "Grande Fratello," the Italian version of "Big Brother") have grown as common as reality TV itself. But director Matteo Garrone's unexpectedly touching treatment is worth seeing, even if you don't know the story of the casting of the central role.
