Igby Goes Down (23-May-2002)

Director: Burr Steers

Writer: Burr Steers

Keywords: Dark Comedy

A curious young man struggles to reconcile his fanciful view of the "real world" with the realities of existence.

ABSTRACT
Igby Slocumb fashions himself a latter-day Holden Caulfield, desiring an escape from the stifling confines of his monied, conservative East Coast family into his romanticized view of the "real world". Igby's quest passes through several prep schools and a terrifying military academy before winding up in a seedy bohemian corner of Manhattan, where he crosses paths with and befriends a number of bizarre characters in an attempt to save himself from "going down".

"I know a girl from Baltimore!"
