This film was amazing. The acting, the characters, the plot and the visual
story were all so refined. This was a film that defines the new adage
is the new loud' and sets a new standard for coming of age films. Much
The Royal Tenenbaums, this film was full of a dysfunctional family that
although unlike anything in most viewers' experience, was real and honest
and touched a part of all of us. Also like the aforementioned film, this
movie's soundtrack was so well picked and so well executed, I was
Burr Steers, a first time screenwriter and director? Is he perhaps channeling his uncle, Gore Vidal, to write and direct this amazing tale? I can't wait to see more from him. Kieran Culkin is equally as promising. He acted the part with such a surreal mix of sullen intelligence, backwards bravery and touching empathy that Igby came to life the moment he hit the screen. Jeff Goldblum and Susan Sarandon were also perfectly cast and were outstanding... I can't mention each of them as there was too much to gush about.
I highly recommend that you run out and see this, but bring a tissue and plan to go celebrate the irony of life and all it's imperfections after you go!
