Harold And Maude (1971), by Hal Ashby. "The idiosyncratic American fable fashioned what would become the cult classic of its era. The story of the emotional & romantic bond between a death-obsessed young man (Bud Cort) from a wealthy family and a devil-may-care, bohemian octogenarian (Ruth Gordon). 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." & Cat Stevens.
