(Culkin), a rebellious seventeen-year-old is at war
with the stifling world of "old money" privelege.
With a schizophrenic father (Bill Pullman), a self-absorbed
mother (Susan Sarandon) and a shark-like Young Republican
big brother (Ryan Phillippe), Igby figures there must
be a better life out there, and he sets about finding
it. He's sent to a military academy in the dreaded Midwest.
With the aid of his mother's pilfered credit card, he
goes on the lam. His voyage eventually lands him in
New York, where he hides out at his godfather's (Jeff
Goldblum) weekend pied-a-terre. There, he encounters
a deviant cast of characters, including his godfather's
trophy choreographer girlfriend (Amanda Peet) and the
terminally bored Sookie Sapperstein (Claire Danes).
