*rings bell* Shame. Shame. Shame.
Richard (Jack Reynor) is the popular kid in his Dublin school. Athletic, charming, the leader of his group of friends. He lands a new girlfriend in the summer between high school and university, Lara (Roisin Murphy) and everything seems to be going well. Then he does something that ruins it all.
This film does well with a slow burn. It takes its sweet time warming us up to Richard. To make sure we see just how much of a stand up guy he is before the event in our title happens. Reynor, little Irish Chris Pratt look-a-like that he is does well in the role. He's completely believable in both his lovable side, and when he inevitably falls apart.
Most of the actors in this film have few credits to their name. They look and feel very natural. While the film is strong, I do think it handles the aftermath of the incident a bit poorly. A bit more time could've been given to it, especially since the film clocks in at a short 88 minutes.
