Donnie Darko

1h 53m Cult, Science Fiction, Drama, Comedy 2001

After narrowly escaping a bizarre accident, a troubled teenager is plagued by visions of a man in a rabbit suit who manipulates him to commit crimes.

_“If revisiting an old movie is a bit like going back in time, that sense of disorientation is doubled in DONNIE DARKO. A haunted miasma of youthful alienation, suburban malaise, cosmic upheaval and 1980s pop-cultural infatuation, writer-director Richard Kelly’s captivatingly strange 2001 debut plays more than ever like its own suspended-in-time artifact.” _— Justin Chang, L.A. Times

Before STRANGER THINGS combined science fiction, Spielbergian touches and ‘80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the high-water mark with this debut feature. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium.

Described by its director as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick,” DONNIE DARKO stars Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Patrick Swayze, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross and Noah Wyle.
