The screenplay for Reality is based on a true story. Director Matteo Garrone called it a "simple working-class tale" not intended to be a political statement. The film won the Grand Prix award at the Cannes Film Festival.
Actor Aniello Arena, who plays the lead role of Luciano, is a former hitman for the mafia who was convicted and served (is serving still? boh) 20 years in prison.
