    Love. Expulsion. Revolution
    Certificate: R
    Running Time: 93 mins
    Retail Price: $39.99
    Release Date:

    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 unlikely friendships with both a lovely first-grade teacher (Olivia Williams) and a melancholy self-made millionaire (Bill Murray).

    Set to a soundtrack of classic British Invasion tunes, Rushmore defies categorization even as it captures the pain and exuberance of adolescence with wit, emotional depth, and cinematic panache.

    Criterion is proud to present 1998`s most acclaimed film in a Director Approved special edition.
