Every once in a while we like to pay tribute to a landmark film by encapsulating it in three animated GIFs. For this installment, on the occasion of Wes Anderson’s latest release, we’re honoring Rushmore, his 1998 coming-of-age picture about two unlikely friends (played by Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray) who fight over the love of a widowed first-grade teacher (played by Olivia Williams).
