This review is from: What Richard Did [DVD] (DVD)
These types of social dramas usually present us with the under classes of our society but this focuses around a wealthy up and coming student who has the whole world in front of him. Apparently Hollywood execs have stolen Jack Reynor from our shores and are sticking him in the next Transformer sequel, which is a shame because the kid has acting skills in abundance.
Two seemingly untarnished questions are asked in Abrahmson's movie: "Why is this happening to me?" and "What do I do?" If you make note of when these explorations are challenged, you may become aware of how loaded they become. Richard is no square peg in a world of round holes. He fits inside the universe quite contently. This only makes his act more maddening.
It will create divisive opinion and in a sense the ending is justified but i couldn't help feel the greatest of sympathies for our main lead.
