A post chemo Susan Sarandon, lectures older brother Ryan Phillippe on the roots of their family's dysfunctionality in a slyly perverse scene.

Spoiled prep-school dropout Igby runs away from boarding school to his bachelor godfather's NYC pad. There he meets Claire Daines' disaffected, dope-smoking diva. Through a little nasty poking around, Igby discovers he's become a man.
