    In a funny, moving and distinctly mind-bending journey through suburban America, one extraordinary but disenchanted teenage is about to take Time-s Arrow for a ride. October 2nd, 1988: just another ordinary day in Donnie Darko-s teen-aged existence. He-s taken his medication, watched Dukakis & Bush debate, and had dinner with the family. Then an outrageous accident occurs, which just misses claiming Donnie-s life. As Donnie begins to explore what it means to still be alive, and in short order to be in love, he uncovers secrets of the universe that five him a tempting power to alter time and destiny. From 26 year-old first time writer-director Richard Kelly comes the provocative Donnie Darko, a genre busting fable that blasts the American suburban drama into a wildly imaginative realm of time travel, alternative universes and the manipulation of one-s fate. But at the core of Donnie Darko is the simple story of a boy trying to make a stand in a lonely, chaotic world - and discovering that every little thing he does counts on a cosmic scale. Originally screened at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, Donnie Darko became one of the festival-s most talked-about and debated films, praised for blending sci-fi fantasy with an original vision of a modern suburbia teetering on the edge of dread and disaster. The question became: what is Donnie Darko? Is it a look back at the underbelly of the Ferris Bueller and Back to the Future era? Or is it a wild journey into multiple realities and multiple outcomes? Is it the story of an increasingly cynical, hypocritical society on a crash-course with apocalypse? Or is it a fairy-tale about a teen hero who changes the world around him? Is this the cosmic death knell of the Regan Era, or a portrait of a troubled community redeemed by the hand of God? The surprising answer is that Donnie Darko is all of these - a deep inquiry into the recent past and the possibilities for the future all wrapped up in the story of a teenager unlike any yomoreless

    The trailer for the Donnie Darko Blu-ray, which arrives in the UK on July 19th, 2010. Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhall) is a troubled teenager living with his family in seemingly idyllic suburban Maryland. A schizophrenic with a history of violence, he has recently stopped taking his medication and sleepwalks as a result. His parents, Rose and Eddie (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne) and his sisters, Elizabeth and Samantha (Maggie Gyllenhall and Daveigh Chase), worry about him. One night at dinner, Donnie and his sister get into a profane argument during which Elizabeth reveals she knows Donnie is no longer taking his medication. Rose confronts Donnie in his bedroom and he calls her a bitch. Guilty, Donnie resumes taking his medication. On October 2nd, however, he sleepwalks and meets Frank, a man in a menacing bunny costume. Frank tells him that in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds, the world will end. That night, a jet engine mysteriously crashes through the roof of the Darkos' house, destroying Donnie's room. Had he not been sleepwalking, he would have been killed. On the way to the office of Dr. Thurman (Katherine Ross), Donnie's therapist, Donnie and Eddie nearly run over Roberta Sparrow, also known as "Grandma Death" (Patience Cleveland). A senile old woman who spends her days shuffling back and forth between her house and the mailbox across the street. Grandma Death whispers in Donnie's ear that all that lives ultimately dies alone. This greatly troubles Donnie, who worries that life has no meaning. A few days later, Frank appears to Donnie in a hallucination and encourages him to flood the private high school he attends by breaking open the water main with an ax. Donnie also embeds the ax in the head of the school's solid bronze statue of its mascot and spray paints "They made me do it" on the sidewalk. School is canceled that day and Donnie walks home with Gretchen (Jena Malone), the new girl in school. She reveals that her stepfmoreless

    Movie

    Donnie Darko is the 2001 indie slipstream cult-sensation starring Jake Gyllenhaal alongside real life sister Maggie Gyllenhaal, and is now available on Amazon. This mind-bending thriller is Richard Kelly's debut film, of which he has director and writer credit, and had surprising success despite a limited box office release. It's popularity is mostly attributed to DVD sales. Jake Gyllenhaal plays the film's title role, a high school student troubled with apocalyptic visions brought on by a giant talking bunny named Frank. Frank convinces Donnie the world in going to end in 28 days if he does not stop it. Donnie's visions leads him on a quest to find the truth about time travel. His condition, and general lack of belonging in his white collar suburban town, often makes him the speaker of uncomfortable truth. This quality attracts new student Gretchen (Jena Malone) who's own dark past makes her an outcast. Frank guides Donnie on a series of crimes, including burning down the house of local celebrity Jim Cunningham (Patrick Swayze) who proves to be child pornographer when his porn dungeon is discovered in the rubble. Donnie must learn how to travel back through time in order to stop a series of horrible events from happening. Drew Barrymore produces and stars as well.moreless
