Donnie Darko: 4-Disc Limited Edition [Blu-ray + DVD Combo]

Fifteen years before Stranger Things Combined Science Fiction, Spielbergian touches and 80's nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template - and the high-water mark - with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as argably the first cult classic of the new millennium.

Donnie is a troubled high school student: in theray, prone towalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 6 hours and 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he 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.

described by it's Directors as "The Catcher in the Rye as told by Phillip K. Dick," Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching eclectic cast - pre stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominee Mary McDonnell and Katharine Ross, and television favorite Noah Wyle - and an evocative soundtrack of 80's classics by Echo and the Bunnyman, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. This brand-new 4k restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Films, allows a modern classic to finally the home video treatment it deserves.
