Igby Goes Down (2002): review- 6.5/10

Wealthy brat Igby flunks Millitary college, escaping to New York where he stays at the art studio of his father's mistress.

This is a well observed, Salinger-esque film, featuring strong performances. However, it is is too smug and mean-spirited to maintain viewer sympathies and ultimately fails both as comedy and tragedy.
