It seems like any project that goes under her name finds her as its breakthrough star. Sydney Sweeney, after her successful run in Euphoria, is now claiming the ‘breakthrough star’ title for nearly every role she touches. And her performance in the docudrama, Reality, really hit home for a lot of viewers. Especially those at the Berlin International Film Festival.
Sydney Sweney was arguably the star of the night at the Berlin International Film Festival. From her red carpet dress to her movie premiere, everything that had Sydney Sweeney’s name on it became the highlight of the prestigious film festival.
Sydney Sweeney brings another hit to THIS platform
HBO basked in the success of Euphoria along with the talented cast. Sydney Sweeney emerged to be among the most popular of the lot, along with Zendaya and Alexa Demie. Right after she completed Euphoria, Sweeney has not missed a beat in choosing other exorbitant projects. Her choice of bringing to light the life of Reality Winner and how the intelligence ultimately caught up with her impressed the masses. Through a deal by UTA Independent Film Group and WME Independent, HBO has acquired the broadcasting right for this actress’ docufilm as reported by Variety.

Tina Satter, who also contributed to the screenplay written by James Paul Dallas, directed the movie. After stumbling upon the interrogation transcript, Satter saw in it the potential to become a thriller movie. And she was right in this because Reality has proved to be exceedingly brilliant, especially for a docufilm. The movie was produced by Seaview and 2 SQ FT and HBO is yet to set a release date for it.
What makes Reality so great?
Soon after the movie gained the favor of even the pickiest of critics, HBO decided to get its hands on the broadcasting rights before anyone else did. Moreover, given how Sydney Sweeney is at the helm of affairs, it is best suited for the platform. Apart from the intriguing premise, it is how carefully Sweeney has paid attention to detail and becomes one with Reality Winner herself through the interrogation transcript.

From the way she speaks to her movement, her performance does not have a glimpse of the breakthrough Hollywood starlet that she has become.
