When Richard (Johnny Depp), a world weary college professor, is given a life-changing diagnosis he decides to throw all pretense and conventions to the wind and live his life as boldly and freely as possible. With a biting sense of humor, a reckless streak, and a touch of madness, he binges through every vice - drinking, smoking, sex, and hurling blunt insults at anyone who annoys him, giving him more pleasure than he’s had in years.  His rollicking journey and bravura assault on the status quo as he runs out the clock leads him to come to terms with the truth and embrace the people he loves for a final hurrah.  RICHARD SAYS GOODBYE is a hilarious and devastating comedy drama about how one man decides to live life to the fullest at the very moment he’s faced with the end of his journey.
