It’s been hard to avoid the avalanche of positive reviews surrounding Lenny Abrahamson’s new film, What Richard Did, with Tara Brady saying it’s likely to be the best Irish film to emerge from Ireland since the turn of the millennium, Variety praising it as “a low-key but compelling morality tale”, ScreenDaily calling it “remarkably impressive”, and IndieWire giving it a B+.

The feature has now been chosen to screen at the BFI London Film Festival following its world premiere at Toronto, and its young lead actor, Jack Reynor (20) has done especially well out of it, signing to WME.

It’s out in Ireland this Friday, October 5th. Here’s the trailer:
