Quietly released in America in 2001, Donnie Darko debuted at Sundance to a bemused audience and negative buzz. However, a loyal DVD audience rallied round, elevating the film into the quintessential cult classic of the new millennium, and making a mega-star of lead Jake Gyllenhaal. This science fiction thriller from writer and director Richard Kelly, has a supporting cast that includes Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore and Patrick Swayze. 

Donnie Darko is a young high-school outcast who is struggling to seek the meaning behind his doomsday-related visions. Prepare yourself for a journey through time and space with Frank the Rabbit – just don’t question your commitment to Sparkle Motion.
