Taken almost word-for-word from the transcript of the FBI’s 2017 interrogation of NSA leaker Reality Winner, this fascinating film from playwright Tina Satter is an intense character study that sucks you in from the get-go. Starring as Reality, Sydney Sweeney absolutely knocks it out of the park, doing far and away her best work yet. And the intimate feel of the sparse film only adds to the intensity. It’s a unique glimpse at a too-easily overlooked fragment of recent history.

4.5/5 stars
