1. The “Catcher in the Rye”
for today’s illiterate, ADD-stricken generation;
2. Another movie where Amanda Peet shows her tits;
3. NOT about oral-sex.
"Igby Goes Down" is about Igby Slocumb, a rebellious and sarcastic seventeen year-old boy, at war with the oppressive world of his East Coast "old money" family. With a schizophrenic father, a self-absorbed, distant mother, and a shark-like young Republican big brother, Igby figures there must be a better life out there, and he sets out to find it. After happily flunking out of several Prep Schools, Igby escapes into the bohemian underworld of Manhattan. His darkly comic trip--shared by a deviant cast of characters, including his terminally bored, part-time lover Sookie, his Godfather's trophy mistress Rachel, and smack-dealing performance artists Russel--veers from bizarre to tragic in Igby's ultimately noble attempt to keep himself from "going down." Plus, Amanda Peet, as per the usual, shows her tits.
