Harold and Maude
When Harold (Bud Cort), a depressed and death-obsessed teenager, meets Maude (Ruth Gordon), a quirky and life-affirming 79-year-old, they form a most unusual relationship, bonded by their outsider outlooks on life. Hal Ashby’s cult classic, featuring one of cinema’s oddest couples, delights in the unexpected by combining uber-dark humour with a moving love story, not to mention a Cat Stevens score—and all to memorable effect. Harold and Maude has aged beautifully and remains one of the most original American independent films of all time.
