Total Film
An impressive study of guilt, responsibility and the bad things that happen to good people. Full Review
Farran Smith Nehme
New York Post
Director Lenny Abrahamson’s latest film has its roots in the notorious death of a teenager outside a Dublin nightclub, later detailed in Kevin Power’s novel “Bad Day in Blackrock.” The pensive, gray-tinged What Richard Did unfolds this downbeat tale in long scenes, but seldom feels slow.

Helen O'Hara
A tough, impactful film that offers a sometimes uncomfortable but always gripping examination of cause and effect. Full Review
Leslie Felperin
In the end, the material feels a bit attenuated, like a short that’s been stretched to feature length, even if the characters are enjoyable, sympathetic enough company for the pic’s 84-minute running time. Full Review
Peter Bradshaw
The Guardian
What Richard Did is an engrossing and intelligent drama that throbs in the mind for hours after the final credits. Full Review
