A forensic psychologist (Collette) is tasked with determining whether or not a minor should face murder charges for killing his schoolmate.
The schoolboy leads were always going to be a tough casting call. Alex, who presents the psychological puzzle the audience must unravel, especially so. For Alex, writer-director Gregory Read felt the story required charisma and unconventional good looks, not to mention the kind of intelligence that prompted Read to think of the character as "the master puppeteer". Read found these in the then young theatre thesp and then recent Cambridge graduate, actor Eddie Redmayne. Read said: "I saw him in a play called 'Hecuba' in Covent Garden and he was incredible...I wanted to find someone who had the eyes. The casting was all about eyes."
