Igby Goes Down (7 Sat 1145P) stars Kieran Culkin (little brother of you know who) but don’t hold that against it. Culkin, as Igby, is the disaffected youth of today with his indifference and irreverence. Ably supported by Susan Sarandon (as his “ferociously acerbic” mother), Ryan Phillipe as his older brother, Jeff Goldblum, his wealthy god father and the delightful Claire Danes and Amanda Peet. [Even Rory Culkin, little brother of who know who and now you know who else, plays a supporting role also].
Script and direction are by debutant Burr Steers who demonstrates an aptitude for “edgy and witty” dialogue. RT 76%.
No GG next week as I will be up bush in Taggerty for the Easter long weekend.
