Donnie Darko

Dark and disturbing, destined-for-cult status tale stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a gifted but troubled 80s high school student whose adolescent horrors take on new dimensions, as he starts to see "shifts in time" and is visited by a fanged, six-foot rabbit. Among the characters Gyllenhaal comes into contact with while struggling with his demons are sympathetic classmate Jena Malone, hippie english teacher Drew Barrymore and annoying self-help guru Patrick Swayze.
