The social media pro­fi­le of a young woman includes pic­tures of her pets, her fri­ends, and her exer­cise rou­ti­ne. But on June 2, 2017, the posts come to an end. This film beg­ins on the fol­lo­wing day and con­ta­ins ver­ba­tim dia­lo­gue from the unedi­ted tran­script of an FBI audio recor­ding. The audi­ence wit­nesses the prot­ago­nist – play­ed by Sydney Sweeney – arri­ving at her home in Georgia, only to be met by two men out­side who poli­te­ly inform her that they have a search war­rant. What fol­lows is a cham­ber pie­ce focu­sing on the inter­ro­ga­ti­on of whist­le-blower Reality Winner and the search of her home.
Director Tina Satter pres­ents a snapshot of recent US histo­ry that deri­ves all of its ten­si­on from the gra­vi­ty of the situa­ti­on. The strong imagery and subt­le direc­tion of the actors in this dra­ma places it on the cusp of docu­men­ta­ry. This enables an unob­s­truc­ted view of the events of that day – befo­re they beca­me a case that was to pola­ri­se the press, the gene­ral public and politics.
