Central Cinema presents one of the 2000s most enduring cult objects, wrapping teen angst and anxiety into a twisty, unnerving thriller.
“A wondrous, moodily self-involved piece of work.” – J. Hoberman
During the presidential election of 1988, a teenager named Donnie Darko sleepwalks out of his house one night and sees a giant, demonic-looking rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world will end in 28 days. When Donnie returns home, he finds that a jet engine has crashed into his bedroom. Is Donnie living in a parallel universe, is he suffering from mental illness – or will the world really end?
“A stunning technical accomplishment that virtually bursts with noise, ideas and references.” – Salon
