Donnie Darko Rated 15

Donnie Darko

Dir. Richard Kelly. USA, 2001. 1h 53m. Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Mary McDonnell, Katharine Ross, Patrick Swayze, Noah Wyle.

Part psychological suburban horror and part mind-bending science fiction, Donnie Darko is arguably the first cult classic of the 21st century. It follows a maladjusted teenager (played by Jake Gyllenhaal in his breakout role) who is told that the world will end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds by a six-foot rabbit named Frank. This beautiful digital restoration marks the 15th anniversary of its original release.

‘Richard Kelly’s rereleased tale of suburban angst, starring a tremendous Jake Gyllenhaal, is a captivating triumph’ ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

‘Gyllenhaal's breakthrough performance is simultaneously heartfelt, melancholy and mischievous.’ ★★★★★ Simon Kinnear, Total Film
