Rushmore + Darjeeling Limited, The

DOUBLE BILL! Wes Anderson & Jason Schwarztman love-fest! The original movie that put them both on the map, plus the rail-riding family feud.

Wes Anderson’s iconic coming-of-age 1998 film RUSHMORE earned him a few Independent Spirit Awards, Bill Murray a Golden Globe nom and - most importantly - catapulted itself to cult status and the director onto a career launchpad. Starring Jason Schwartzman in his film debut as Max, an eccentric young student at private school Rushmore Academy, who bonds with his mentor - Bill Murray’s Herman Blume - over their mutual love for school teacher Rosemary Cross (Olivia Williams), RUSHMORE may be offbeat but it is also a visceral look at the particular type of humiliation that comes with being in love during adolescence.

2007’s THE DARJEELING LIMITED introduced a formidable and electric trio’s worth of Big Sibling Energy in Owen Wilson, Adrien Brody and Jason Schwartzman, playing three estranged siblings reuniting in India after the death of their father. Carrying out a “spiritual journey” across the country on a luxury train, Anderson’s film vied for the Golden Lion at Venice and is also notable from screening with Natalie Portman-starring short Hotel Chevalier. Both leave the audience with a heady sense of escapism and Anderson’s singular style, with a soundtrack that’s stayed with us for the past 13 years and we’re sure will endure.
