An unofficial adaptation of "The Catcher in the Rye," the weaknesses of that novel are in full display here (primarily being angsty and self-indulgent.) Nevertheless, fabulous performances and a plot that keeps clipping along make this a favorite despite the flaws - definitely worth a watch.
My only problem with this film is the character of Igby, you're supposed to feel some sort of sympathy for him but I just end up hating the guy, because of his actions. Kieran Culkin though is fantastic as is the rest of the cast, that scene between Igby and Dane's character when Igby is banging on her door was pretty well. Nice job by Steers.
