What Richard Did by Lenny Abrahamson, 2012 (NR)

with Sam Keeley, Jack Reynor, Róisín Murphy, Lars Mikkelsen, Gavin Drea, Lorraine Pilkington, Gabrielle Reidy, David Herlihy, Padraic Delaney, Tom Hickey, Fionn Walton, Patrick Gibson, Liana O'Cleirigh, Rachel Gleeson

Newcomer Jack Reynor and Róisín Murphy star alongside Sam Keeley (The Other Side of Sleep, Misfits), and Lars Mikkelsen ("The Killing") in this striking portrait adapted from Kevin Powers' award-winning book "Bad Day in Blackrock." The world is bright and everything seems possible for Richard Karlsen (Reynor), the golden boy of his privileged set of Dublin teens, until he does something that destroys it all and shatters the lives of the people closest to him.

One of the most interesting movie I have seen in a while, a rich portrait of adolescence, all in subtlety, with incredible performances from actors, Jack Reynor and Lars Mikkelsen to start with. The viewpoint is also quite unique, in a sense that the movie is not so much about the punishment or judgmental, it is how it shatters lives, how destruction and guilt build slowly, and gives an inside look to the raw of emotion and loss. Beautiful.
