New 4k restoration! Original theatrical cut! 3 nights only: Oct. 19-21
The first and greatest midnight movie of the 21st century, Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko is an intoxicating trip through the mind of a troubled high school student. It's October 1988 in suburban Virginia. A young, moody teenager named Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal) sleepwalks to the local golf course, where he meets Frank, a six-foot rabbit who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time Donnie will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank's maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum. Ragtag presents a new 4K restoration of this hilarious and haunting modern classic.
"As emotive as it is heady and matter-of-factly political. Donnie Darko would be unimaginable without Gyllenhaal's performance, still the most memorable of a fine career." (Amy Taubin)
