Igby Goes Down
2002
***
Director: Burr Steers
Cast: Kieran Culkin, Claire Danes, Susan Sarandon, Ryan Philippe, Jeff Goldblum

With a family consisting of a pill-popping mother, a mentally ill father and an overachieving brother, no wonder 17-year-old slacker Igby struggles to come to terms with his life. This is a quirky, smart, funny and well acted rites of passage story, but unfortunately everything in it seems second-hand, like warmed up left-overs from better movies.
