I'm not sure how many of you have seen this movie, but it has to be one of my top 20 favorite movies. If you haven't seen it I really suggest that you check it out and rent it. It's basically about a bright, overly involved, and mature for his age teenager that falls for a teacher (Olivia Williams) at his private school. But there is a lot more to this movie then that. The movie was directed by Wes Anderson (Bottle Rocket, and the soon to be released The Royal Tenebaums) and writing by Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson ( Meet the Parents, Shanghai Noon, soon to be released Behind Enemy Lines, and brother of Luke Wilson who is in the movie). The movie stars Jason Schwartzman (in his first acting role) as Max Fischer the teenager that is involved in everything at school, and falls for a teacher that had checked out a library book before him. The movie also includes Bill Murray as a alumnus of the private school who befriends Max and the teacher after making a speech at the school. It's a really good movie, I have owned it on video for about 2 years.
