Reality Winner—yeah, that’s her real name—is arrested under suspicion of leaking important documents about potential Russian involvement in the results of the 2016 American presidential elections. What follows is a heart-pounding interrogation with the FBI. Tina Satter’s debut film takes ‘based on a true story’ one step further and reproduces the actual transcript of this interrogation almost verbatim. Prepare to be seated at the edge of your seat for an hour and a half and let Sydney Sweeney (Euphoria, The White Lotus) surprise you with a side of her we have not seen before.
