Storyline

Davie Szyanski is a high school boy dealing with the recent passing of his mother. His father, Ron, a failed musician and athlete, having lost his job in the steel mills, took a job as a janitor in an exclusive prep school to provide Davie with a better education. It is there that they both experience a world which pushes them further apart. Davie becomes a compulsive liar to fit in and although lacking in talent, dreams of being a rock star. Together they deal with their losses and discover that the one thing they will always have is each other. Written by Anonymous

wow!
14 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to say that if someone was to tell that they had tickets to a student film I would probably not be excited. I have lived (and worked) around the world and am no stranger to student works of art, and sometimes they leave you wanting. 'Donnybrook' was a superior project in its conception, execution and delivery. The professional quality of work done by students and local talent (i.e. non-professional actors) in conjunction with a Cleveland-based crew is nothing short of brilliant.

I am very disappointed (but not surprised) by the derogatory and immature comments in this section. Lacking maturity and eloquence, comments such as these seem to be written by those that want to sabotage the hard work of their classmates, colleagues and image of the school. How do we know that this script is not auto-biographical? How crass it is to make any mention of the writer/ director's mother.

I would like to end on a positive note and reiterate my appreciation to everyone involved (yes, even the jealous critics) - Love to Donnybrook cast and crew!
