Harold and Maude

Harold and Maude
Harold and Maude


Harold is a young rich kid who finds that the only thing in life that brings him joy is death - namely faking his and attending funerals for those who have recently experienced their own (never mind that he doesn't know the recently departed). Maude is a much much older lady who finds that the only thing in life that brings her joy is everything, especially the things she shouldn't do - like attending funerals of strangers and then stealing cars of mourners to get herself home. The two of course meet up and an unlikely wild ride ensues.

If I'm not mistaken this was filmed in '71 and released in '72? I was born around then so I missed this one until now when it came up in a "If you like these movies, you may like this one" search. It was so good that I realized I may need to start catching up on some others I missed that were "before my time". If you like quirky, character driven stories, this is a good one to go with. 5/5 stars
