Donnie Darko

Tuesday, October 23

Film Suburbs & Beyond

4K remaster! Troubled teen Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal) is saved from death by a demonic, six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him that the world will end in twenty-eight days. Is Frank real? Is time-travel possible? Can Donnie woo the cute new girl at school (Jena Malone)? Described by its director as “the story of Holden Caulfield, resurrected by the spirit of Philip K. Dick,” this modern cult classic inflects the '80s teen movie template with metaphysical mystery and apocalyptic dread.
