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

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
