Harold & Maude

A 20-something young man with an obsession for death. A woman pushing 80 with a thirst for life. They meet. They fall in love. They end up in bed together. You know, the typical rom-com.

Harold & Maude was released in 1971 and was a commercial flop but in the nearly 40 years since then it has been elevated to classic status. The US Library Of Congress selected it for preservation in 1997.

If you have never seen this film then get off your backside and do so soon, it will change the way you look at life. If you have then you are probably smiling right now at the thought of it.
