Rushmore

July 1, 2014

The first of the stylized "Wes Anderson" films, prep school student Max Fischer's love of his alma mater's extra-curricular activities is only surpassed by his crush on the beguiling Miss Cross.

Rushmore was not only Anderson's first hit film, but shaped the hearts and minds of a generation of overachievers, made a star of Jason Schwartzman, and launched Bill Murray into a late career tragi-comic resurgence.
