Director: Wes Anderson Run Time: 93 min. Format: 35mm Film Release Year: 1998
Starring: Bill Murray, Brian Cox, Jason Schwartzman, Olivia Williams, Seymour Cassel
In RUSHMORE, Bill Murray plays the childlike antagonist/mentor to an über-precocious student at a prestigious prep school (Schwartzman). The triumph of RUSHMORE is co-writers Anderson and Owen Wilson’s ability to make us laugh and convey real pathos without once stooping to sentimentality or convention.
Double Feature with THE ROYAL TENENBAUMS
