The film features an ensemble of young Irish actors including Jack Reynor, Sam Keeley and Róisín Murphy as well as established talent including Lorraine Pilkington and Lars Mikkelsen (star of the Danish hit series, THE KILLING).What Richard Did will be released in cinema’s on October 5th.
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. Featuring extraordinary performances from its mainly young cast, 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.
