Overview
Darren Aronofsky follows up his acclaimed debut "pi" with this gritty emotionally charged film set amidst the abandoned beaches and faded glory of Coney Island, Brooklyn. Based upon the novel by celebrated author Hubert Selby Jr., the story intricately links the lives of a lonely widowed mother (Academy Award® Winner Ellen Burstyn*), her son Harry (Jared Leto), his beautiful girlfriend Marion (Jennifer Connelly) and his best friend Tyrone (Marlon Wayans). REQUIEM FOR A DREAM is a hypnotic tale of four human beings each pursuing their vision of happiness. Even as everything begins to fall apart, they refuse to let go, plummeting with their dreams into a nightmarish, gut-wrenching freefall.

Easter Eggs
EGG 1:

Boot up the DVD in your player and wait until the main menu of the disc comes up. Then press the 'Down' arrow key on your remote control until the line 'Hear Tappy's Amazing Life Story' appears at the bottom of the screen.
Now, press 'Enter' on the remote control and you will get to see the full footage from the movie’s television program 'Tappy Tibbons' that Sara Goldfarb watches on her drug of choice. It is an exciting 5-minute features that includes parts of the film where Tappy talks about his amazing life story.

EGG 2:

Go to the Chapter Selection section. Go to the video cassette spine labeled "Chapters 21-24 (#3 Shhh!)." Press up twice, then press enter. You can now see a hidden bit from Tappy Tibbons' infomercial where he explains what his secret #3 is (if you notice, it's never said in the film).
This egg was obtained by calling the Tappy Tibbons phone number, 1-900-976-JUICE. So don't call and get charged money to find out the above.
