Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

"Rushmore" chronicles a year in the life of Max Fischer, a student at Rushmore Academy, one of the finest schools in the country. Max loves his prestigious school. He is the editor of the newspaper and yearbook; founder of the debate team, the dodgeball society, and the Max Fischer Players; and president of the French club, German club, chess club, and practically everything else. Max is applying for early admission to Oxford. Harvard is his safety. However, he is also one of the worst students in the school. Threatened with expulsion, Max begins a new pursuit: falling for a first-grade teacher. But when Max's tycoon mentor starts an affair with the teacher, it triggers a war between Max and his friend.

It's the funniest, saddest performance of the year in a film of uncompromising wit and heart.

With its dry, throwaway humor and constant stream of chuckles, it creates its own category of stealth comedy.

A true original: a film that stands apart from the crowd, goes its own way and all but dares you not to like it.
