After flunking out of yet another prep school, Igby is sent to a Midwest military academy, and from there, with his mother’s pilfered credit card, he goes “on the lam”. His darkly comedic voyage eventually leads to New York, where he hides out at his godfather’s (JEFF GOLDBLUM) weekend pied-a-terre.
Avoiding his family, Igby falls in with a host of questionable characters, including his godfather’s trophy girlfriend (AMANDA PEET), her flamboyant pal Russel (JARED HARRIS), and the terminally bored Sookie Sapperstein (CLAIRE DANES). In his quest to free himself from the oppressive dysfunction of his family and figure out what he wants for himself, Igby’s struggles veer from comic to tragic in an ultimately noble attempt to keep himself from “going down.”
