Synopsis

Donnie Darko is a misfit - a troubled 15 year old whose life takes a strange turn when he receives a visit from a giant talking rabbit warning him of the end of the world. But from there, unlikely as it might sound, things only get weirder - not least when the engine from a plane falls from the sky onto Donnie's house one night, his life saved by what seems a miracle. Are these two events linked? And just who is the sinister rabbit-man who now keeps re-appearing to tell Donnie to carry out acts of vandalism? The answers lie in this original and mind-bending movie that attracted a major cult following straight after its release in 2002.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
