2001 · d. Richard Kelly   Reviews
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone, Drew Barrymore, Patrick Swayze, Maggie Gyllenhaal

4K remaster! Troubled teen Donnie (Jake Gyllenhaal) is saved from death by a demonic, six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him that the world will end in twenty-eight days. Is Frank real? Is time-travel possible? Can Donnie woo the cute new girl at school (Jena Malone)? Described by its director as “the story of Holden Caulfield, resurrected by the spirit of Philip K. Dick,” this modern cult classic inflects the '80s teen movie template with metaphysical mystery and apocalyptic dread.

Shown in conjunction with the film course Teenage Dreams, American Nightmares: Americana, Youth Culture, and the Horror Film, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Alice Bullitt, M.A.
