Overview
Wes Anderson's dazzling sophomore effort is equal parts coming-of-age story, French New Wave homage, and screwball comedy. Tenth grader Max Fischer [Jason Schwartzman] is Rushmore Academy's most extracurricular student—and its least scholarly. He faces expulsion and enters into unlikely friendships with both a lovely first-grade teacher [Olivia Williams] and a melancholy self-made millionaire [Bill Murray, in an award-winning performance]. Set to a soundtrack of classic British Invasion tunes, RUSHMORE defies categorization even as it captures the pain and exuberance of adolescence with wit, emotional depth, and cinematic panache. Criterion is proud to present one of 1998's most acclaimed films in a Director Approved special edition.
