What Richard Did in April

News
The latest feature from Lenny Abrahamson, director of Adam & Paul and Garage, will arrive onto Blu-ray and DVD in April thanks to Artificial Eye. From the press release…

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. Richard’s world is bright and everything seems possible, until one summer night when love, pride and jealousy cause Richard to commit an act that will destroy it all and shatter the lives of those 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.

Extras features will include: director’s commentary, an interview with Abrahamson, an interview with the cast, and the theatrical trailer.

Both Blu-ray and DVD editions will be released on April 8th and we’ll have a review nearer the release date. In the meantime, you can check out our review of Abraham’s Garage here and watch the original theatrical trailer below…
