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 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. It's a complex, subtle drama about self-confident teenagers that draws on two traditions: American teen-noir such as Carrie or Heathers, and European dramas of group dysfunction such as those by Vinterberg and Haneke.
