Tenth-grade savant Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman) doesn’t worry about his grades. He’s too busy with extracurricular activities, like staging his Vietnam War-themed school play, Heaven and Hell. On the verge of losing his scholarship, he finds an ally in disaffected tycoon/Rushmore parent Herman Blume (Bill Murray). But their friendship becomes a bitter rivalry when they both fall for Rushmore’s new first-grade teacher (Olivia Williams). "You'll find a pair of safety glasses and some earplugs underneath your seat. Please feel free to use them."
