Rushmore
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Wes Anderson


A bittersweet comedy more akin to British mod sensibilities and the French New Wave than traditional American teen flicks, Wes Anderson's film is an engaging, compassionate look into the life of 15-year-old Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), a poor scholarship student at the posh Rushmore Academy. An extracurricular overachiever with grand schemes, Max believes he can accomplish anything--including winning the love of the beautiful teacher, Miss Cross (the luminous Olivia Williams). Max's dauntless pursuit of her love and the subsequent conflict with his friend and rival Herman Blume (Bill Murray, in a stellar performance) make for a witty and insightful exploration of the joys and frustrations of adolescence.
