WES ANDERSON’S HILARIOUS CULT PHENOMENON STARRING BILL MURRAY AND JASON SCHWARTZMAN.

The dazzling sophomore film from WES ANDERSON (Fantastic Mr. Fox) is equal parts coming‐of‐age story, French New Wave homage, and screwball comedy. Tenth grader Max Fischer (The Darjeeling Limited’s JASON SCHWARTZMAN) is Rushmore Academy’s most extracurricular student—and its least scholarly. He faces expulsion and enters into unlikely friendships with both a lovely first‐grade teacher (The Ghost Writer’s OLIVIA WILLIAMS) and a melancholy self‐made millionaire (Groundhog Day’s BILL MURRAY, in an awardwinning performance). Set to a soundtrack of classic British Invasion tunes, Rushmore defies categorization; it captures the pain and exuberance of adolescence with wit, emotional depth, and cinematic panache.

If you're not rushing to get this, you better Rushmore!

A little gem of a film that if just easy and enjoyable to watch with witty writing and fun performances. Nice extras with this, which will be going in a frame.

Love it!

Arrived fast and was in great condition. This was my first criterion. The artwork is very cool! One of my favorite Wes Anderson movies and I’m so happy to finally have this in my collection.

Criterion delivers a wonderful release of an essential Anderson film

Wes Anderson's second feature film stands up as one of his absolute best, Max Fischer is an engaging character and has wonderful chemistry with Bill Murray. As with many Criterion releases this edition of the film looks beautiful, and has some great special features, with the Charlie Rose interviews and storyboard comparison being downright essential. Some may find the retail price a little bit steep but especially on sale this is a release that really can't be missed. Highly Recommended.
