Rushmore is the story of a gifted, iconoclastic youth called Max Fischer, a tenth-grader at the elite, conservative Rushmore Academy, who rocks the boat with his restless intellect and madcap entrepreneurial schemes which tend towards failure. Editor of the school paper, captain or president of innumerable clubs and societies, director of the radical theatre company Max Fischer Players - Max is also one of the worst students in the school, and the threat of expulsion hangs permanently over his head. But Max's own world is rocked when he falls for elegant first-grade teacher Miss Cross, and plans to erect an aquarium at Rushmore in her honour - then finds himself competing for her favour with his friend, steel tycoon Mr Blume, the wealthy father of two of his classmates . . .
