Lenny Abrahamson’s What Richard Did has wowed audiences in Ireland and is continuing to do so further afield, having recently won the Best Screenplay prize at the London Evening Standard British Film Awards. Based on Kevin Powers’ Bad Day in BLackrock, it’s the story of Richard Karlsen (and impressive Jack Reynor): 18 years old, mature, responsible, popular, with the world at his feet and in danger of losing everything because of a single act of out-of-character rage. With a visual and narrative economy of style and subtlety of pacing that have become the director’s hallmarks, at its core it’s the story of a male relationship, that of Richard and his devastated father (superbly played by Lars Mikkelsen).
