One of the best coming-of-age stories of all time. Quirky, funny, tragic, and all too realistic. Never predictable. 'Catcher In The Rye' with less angst, more clubs, and the politics of love, revenge, and high school. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571200125, Paperback)

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."

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:29:08 -0400)

A gifted, rebellious teenager finds himself in competition with a wealthy older man for a favorite teacher's affections.
