S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale - Seven years after the death of her
elder brother Donnie, Samantha Darko (Chase) is struggling through adolescence
as her family crumbles around her. Samantha tries to escape to Hollywood with
her best friend Corey (Evigan), setting off on an ill-fated road trip which
culminates in them breaking down in a remote desert town. As the pair are forced
to stay in the town, a meteorite hits nearby causing Samantha to begin to have
visions of the universe's end. In addition, she finds out that she was in fact
adopted by the Darko's and that the fate of the world is in her hands.
Donnie Darko - It's October 1988, in the Virginia suburb of Middlesex. When Frank, a grotesque giant bunny (possibly imaginary), leads Donnie out of his house minutes before a plane smashes through his roof, he not only saves Donnie's life but also warns Donnie that the world is about to end. Over the next few weeks, Donnie falls in love with Gretchen (Jena Malone) and tries to figure out what his life means. Writer and director Richard Kelly's bold debut film is a social satire, a dark comedy, a science fiction time-travelling fantasy, and a suburban nightmare about an extremely intelligent, depressive, self-destructive teenager. Like 'Ghost World' it uses teen comedy as the entry point for a subversive look at American life. Jake Gyllenhaal leads an exceptional cast, bringing Kelly's twisted but humane vision to life.
