The Review: This independent 2012 movie is a good little film with a striking central performance from Jack Reynor who plays the eponymous character. Richard’s a typical lad engaging in banter with his mates and smitten by a girl. One night, alcohol and jealousy mix to catastrophic effect. What follows is a slow-burning and haunting portrayal of grief that tests friendships and loyalties.
This film will be too slow for some but I found it compelling and was desperate to see how it would all play out. It ends abruptly and not entirely satisfactorily, but this can be true of life itself.
The Verdict: What I Did: Watched the film and enjoyed it!
