Igby Goes Down

Igby's (Kieran Culkin)'s mother (Susan Sarandon) is dying of breast cancer. Igby joins his brother Ollie (Ryan Phillippe) in assisting her suicide by giving her poison. Before she dies Igby's mother writes him a check (we assume a big one) and says, "By the way, did I ever tell you that your godfather (Jeff Goldblum) is really your father?" (Which explains why the godfather was financing Igby's education among other things.) Igby doesn't go back to military school, gets his GED, then after his mother dies flies to California by himself to start life anew.
Thanks, Lisa E!
