There’s at least two times a week when I want to watch Igby Goes Down. I first saw it in theaters when I was a junior in boarding school.
It’s a modern day Catcher in The Rye, a dark and witty film that brilliantly illustrates how much we all feel, even when we try our hardest not to care about anything or anyone. It shows how people fuck us up, how we fuck up other people, and how that’s an inherent part of being human. The cast is phenomenal.
I cry in the last scene, every time.
