Rushmore

Wes Anderson's cult hit comedy - his second film after 1996’s Bottle Rocket. Eccentric, 15-year-old Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) is the king of Rushmore prep school's extra-curricular activities – holding positions from president of the bee-keepers society to manager of the lacrosse team. But when he befriends rich industrialist Herman (Murray), they both fall for teacher Rosemary (Olivia Williams). As the love triangle heats up, Max's big dreams start to crumble around him.

Best Director and Supporting Actor (Murray) at the Independent Spirit Awards 1999.

A wickedly funny high school comedy for most of its running time, Rushmore is a bracingly fresh and original outing.

Accurate enough on the teen-angst front to make you wince, yet whimsical enough to make you want Max to win.

Offers more than simply a series of high-grade yuks; it's a finely-judged parable on the line between self-delusion and reality.
