A Film by Lenny Abrahamson

Starring Jack Reynor, Roisin Murphy and Sam Keeley

What Richard Did follows Richard Karlsen, golden-boy athlete and undisputed alpha-male of his privileged set of South Dublin teenagers, through the summer between the end of school and the beginning of university. The world is bright and everything seems possible, until in one summer night Richard does something that destroys it all and shatters the lives of the people closest to him. What Richard Did is a quietly devastating study of a boy confronting the gap between who he thought he was and who he proves to be. Written by Calum Young

"What Richard Did is an engrossing and intelligent drama that throbs in the mind for hours after the final credits."

--Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"The film's structure as a character study helps to subtly underscore the flawed justifications of a privileged kid's thought patterns and unchallenged value system."

--Tina Hassannia, Slant Magazine

Winner of the London Critics Circle Film Award for Best Young Actor of the Year (Jack Reynor)
