Movies Houstonians Love Screening: Kyrie O'Connor picks Rushmore


An original comedy shot in Houston, Rushmore launched the career of director Wes Anderson. The film's plot follows 15-year-old Max (Jason Schwartzman), an underachieving yet overconfident student at Rushmore Academy who has romantic designs on teacher Miss Cross (Olivia Williams). In his quest to impress her, Max enlists the help of wealthy alum Herman Blume (Bill Murray) — who also falls for Miss Cross — instigating a war of nasty tricks between the two quirky rivals.

Introduced by Kyrie O'Connor of the Houston Chronicle and NPR's Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!, the film is screened as part of a series that invites notable local celebrities to share a favorite film in Brown Auditorium Theater.
