American auteur Wes Anderson followed up his indie hit “Bottle Rocket” with this idiosyncratic story of a high school playwriting wunderkind (Jason Schwartzman) who befriends a downtrodden businessman (Bill Murray) as they both fall for the same woman. The film transformed Murray from big-budget comedy star into indie film darling, and earned Anderson an Independent Spirit Award for Best Director.
