Quote from Courtney Glaudé, the film’s writer and director:
|“The Reading is a rollercoaster of a project that I am thrilled to see come to life,” says director/writer Courtney Glaudé. “I am a fan of the surgical performance by Mo’Nique, and the love and commitment from the entire cast during the pandemic. I appreciate the dedication to bringing this, as I was told, “sick” vision of mine to the screen; and of course Lee Daniels for being crazy enough to Executive Produce the project and believing in me. I can’t wait for the audience to think they know, but have no idea what’s going to happen. I promise you…it’s crazy.”|
