"I saved Latin. What did you ever do?"
Wes Anderson's RUSHMORE chronicles a year in the life of Max Fischer (a career-making debut performance from Jason Schwartzman), a student at Rushmore Academy, one of the finest schools in the country. Max loves his prestigious school; he is the editor of the newspaper and yearbook, founder of the debate team, the dodgeball society, and the Max Fischer Players and president of the French club, German club, chess club, and practically everything else. Max is applying for early admission to Oxford (Harvard is his safety). However, he is also one of the worst students in the school. Threatened with expulsion, Max begins a new pursuit: falling for a first-grade teacher. But when Max's tycoon mentor (Bill Murray) starts an affair with the teacher, it triggers a war between Max and his friend. With Olivia Williams, Seymour Cassel, Brian Cox, Luke Wilson.
"A gloriously inventive little comedy about the scholastic and romantic woes of a 15-year-old student at a private academy." (People Magazine)
"'Rushmore' manages to pay tribute to movies as diverse as 'The Graduate' and 'Apocalypse Now' and still brim over with the pleasures of the unexpected." (Rolling Stone)
