Performance of the Day

Film: "Igby Goes Down"
Character: Mimi Slocumb
Year: 2002

I have longed enjoyed performances by Oscar winner Susan Sarandon, but rarely have I seen her master dark comedy like she did in "Igby Goes Down". She is outstanding as 'Mimi', a wealthy, pill-popping, mega bitch, who tries to control her rebellious son, Igby (Kieran Culkin). Sarandon is hilarious and pitch-perfect in this 2002 gem.
