||Synopsis: Seventeen year old Jason Slocumb, Jr. - Igby to most that know him - comes from east coast old money, the second son of self-absorbed and controlling Mimi Slocumb and medically-diagnosed schizophrenic Jason Slocum, Sr., the latter who has for several years been institutionalized in a Maryland psychiatric facility. While Igby's economics-studying Columbia-attending older brother Ollie Slocum has embraced and aspires to continue their wealthy life, Igby has rebelled against it, considering his brother a fascist (although he could soften that label to Republican). Because of Jason's situation, Mimi has largely left the role of male role model for Ollie and Igby to their godfather, D.H. Banes. Igby's rebellion has led to him being kicked out of one prep school after another, the latest, a military academy, from which Igby escapes before he can graduate.

Watch Igby Goes Down - Alternative Versions.
Ten out of ten. One of the greats, with memorable characters you'll think
about for days. This great film got caught in MGM/UA distribution
If it could have busted out of the indy circuit from day one and gotten
general release, it would have been favorably compared with "The Graduate"
and Kieran Culkin's performance with Dustin Hoffman's debut performance in
that Mike Nichol's classic. MGM/UA blew it.
Culkin is a great young player with a look and resources evoking both
Hoffman and Robert Downey. He's naturalistic and great to watch. Smart,
funny, urbane writing by first time director Steers is never "on the
Yet underneath the evasive, sarcastic stripped down dialogue he pulls hard
hitting emotions from his ensemble. Not a false or wasted scene and more
than a few really powerful ones. Every player is at the top of their game,
from Kieran Culkin to Amanda Peet, Jeff Goldblum to Susan Sarandon, Bill
Pullman to Claire Danes to Ryan Phillippe. They're obviously guided by a

Igby is the anti Ferris Beuhler - a smart wanna be who's wise mouth and
attitude usually piss off those around him - his mother, his brother, his
godfather. Torn between those who don't get him and those who do (Peet,
Danes), Igby paints all his relationships with the same sarcastic brush,
vulnerability only busting out when he's pushed to the limit. Culkin's
perfomance is not to be missed. The key women, Sarandon, Peet and Danes
play fully formed characters. Goldblum is perfect for his role, his usual
facile acting style well suited to the South Hampton prince he plays; his
best turn in years.
Seers has style and flow, and his final cut is aided by the excellent
choices he and his music supervisor, Nick Harcourt arrived at. Cameron
couldn't do better. The Igby soundtrack is tres alt moderne and every cut
Warning: Actors are blocked (brilliantly) for wide screen format. So this
film will suffer from TV / video screen ratios as the Graduate does.
go see it in the theater NOW or wait for letterbox!
