Love. Expulsion. Revolution.

Life is filled with restlessness, loneliness and uncertainty, but once you're past the tender, angry teenage years, it ain't so bad. In Wes Anderson's 1998 film Rushmore we meet tenth grader Max Fischer, Rushmore Academy's top overachiever at everything except earning good grades, and suffering all the familiar aches of a typical teenager. He falls for a woman he can't have, he struggles with death and loss, he gets in fights, and he lies about getting handjobs all alongside Herman Blume, a depressed middle-aged millionaire and would-be mentor -- if Herman weren't emotionally still a kid himself. Watch Max and Herman endure heartache, revenge, regret and growth at the hands of one another at 8 p.m tonight at the Webster University Film Series screening of Rushmore in Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or www.webster.edu/filmseries). Tickets are $5 to $6.
