DONNIE DARKO screening at the Landmark Uptown, Minneapolis MN

8th March 2019

Before “Stranger Things” combined science fiction, Spielbergian touches and ‘80s nostalgia to much acclaim, writer/director Richard Kelly set the high-water mark with his debut feature. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium. Described by its director as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick,” Donnie Darko stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a troubled high school student who is visited by a demonic rabbit with eerie visions of the past—and deadly predictions for the future. Funny, moving and a distinctly mind-bending journey through suburban America, Donnie Darko features an outstanding soundtrack, including Gary Jules's haunting cover of the Tears for Fears song “Mad World.” Also starring Drew Barrymore, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Noah Wyle, Patrick Swayze, Jena Malone, Katharine Ross and Mary McDonnell co-star.
