Publisher Comments:

Rushmore is the second work from the team of Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson following the success of their debut screenplay and film Bottle Rocket. It is a refreshingly offbeat comedy about young Max Fish, a precocious pupil at a conservative private school. He is a live wire, a teenager full of madcap entrepreneurial schemes that usually in failure. His personal life becomes similarly complicated when he falls for his elegant teacher, Rosemary Cross, and finds himself vying for her favor with Herman Blume-who is portrayed in the film by Bill Murray-the wealthy father of two of his classmates. Max ultimately proves himself a figure of some tenacity as he negotiates the minefield of love, desire, and adolescence.At the Toronto Film Festival, Screen International called Rushmore "a real charmer filled with surprise twists and emotions that avoid sentimentality . . . A little gem."

Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson both live in Los Angeles.

Rushmore is the story of a gifted, iconoclastic youth called Max Fischer, a 10th-grader at the elite, conservative Rushmore Academy, who rocks the boat with his restless intellect and madcap entrepreneurial schemes which tend towards failure. Editor of the school paper, captain or president of innumerable clubs and societies, director of the radical theater company Max Fischer PlayersMax is also one of the worst students in the school, and the threat of expulsion hangs permanently over his head. But Max's own world is rocked when he falls for elegant 1st-grade teacher Miss Cross, and plans to erect an aquarium at Rushmore in her honorthen finds himself competing for her favor with his friend, steel tycoon Mr. Blume, the wealthy father of two of his classmates.

Hailed by critics everywhere as a fresh, funny, endearing, and intelligently crafted motion picture, Rushmore is the second work from the team of Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson, which follows the success of their debut screenplay and film Bottle Rocket.

Praise for the film Rushmore

"The best American comedy since Annie Hall."Premiere

"An unqualified delight . . . [It] maintains the mix of comic and dramatic throughout."Allan Hunter, Screen International

"A wickedly funny high school comedy . . . This tart tale of an audaciously clever prep school kid . . . has all the makings of a cult hit . . . nearly everything hits the bull's-eye here, a rarity in screen comedy these days."Todd McCarthy, Variety
