Film Series: Rushmore

1998. USA. Dir: Wes Anderson. With Jason Schwartzman, Bill Murray. 93 min.

Anderson’s second feature (co-written with Owen Wilson) proved to be his big breakout, a strange and funny story of precocious youth, unrequited love, and amateur theater. Schwartzman plays an eccentric, extracurricular-loving 15-year-old who feuds with a depressed business magnate (Murray) over the affections of a widowed elementary school teacher.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
