Harold is obsessed with death, and dying, and funerals. Until he meets Maude, and then he starts to live his life with a little more hope.

With this idiosyncratic American fable, countercultur- al director Hal Ashby fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era. Equal parts gallows humor and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with the ones that separate people by class, gender, and age, and it features indelible performances and a remark- able soundtrack by Cat Stevens.
