2015's bittersweet comedy-drama Cold Reader explores a day in the life of prolific library user, Edward and inquisitive, feisty librarian, Gaia. Exploring themes of loss of identity and the bonds that tie us, Cold Reader considers homelessness from a different angle
Shot on location at Hainault Public Library, East London, Cold Reader has enjoyed a string of international festival success, screening in the UK, US, South America and Europe and picking up awards for Best Screenplay (Kristina Heaney) and Best Actress (Melissa Clements). The film has now screened at more than ten festivals
UK Film Review critic Lorenzo Lombardi said of Cold Reader: "Themes such as loneliness are carefully conveyed in a relatable and uplifting way...It is about the desire for human interaction and overall betterment. And that’s what makes it undeniably appealing."
