Jack Reynor talks about Irish film What Richard Did

What Richard Did – described by one newspaper as "the most important Irish film of this century" – has recently screened at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Irish films featured strongly at Tribeca this year with seven pictures on the programme.

What Richard Did was a standout film that has already been well-received outside the US and won recognition for the movie’s star Jack Reynor, who will play opposite Mark Wahlberg in the next trilogy of Transformers films.

Talking Movies’ Alan Moloney meets Jack Reynor and the director of What Richard Did, Lenny Abraham, to discuss a modern-day morality play about a young man brought low by a moment’s foolish action.
