Rushmore by Wes Anderson( Visual )

4 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wes Anderson's dazzling sophomore effort is equal parts coming-of-age story, French New Wave homage, and screwball comedy. Tenth grader Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) is Rushmore Academy's most extracurricular student -- and its least scholarly. He faces expulsion and enters into an unlikely friendship with both a lovely first-grade teacher (Olivia Williams) and a melancholy self-made millionaire (Bill Murray, in an award-winning performance). Set to a soundtrack of classic British Invasion tunes, RUSHMORE defies categorization even as it captures the pain and exuberance of adolescence with emotional depth, and cinematic panache. Criterion is proud to present one of 1998's most acclaimed films in a Director Approved special edition."--Container

Dabei deutet die stellenweise betont kühle Inszenierung die emotionalen und erotischen Spannungen dieser Konstellation nur ansatzweise an
