Harold and Maude

This darkly romantic comedy by the great Hal Ashby is as close to comedy heaven as you can get.

The plot itself involves a depressed suicide obsessive 20 year old man, (Harold) who meets and falls for an eccentric, life loving 79 years young lady (Maude - beautifully portrayed by Ruth Gordon form the "Any which way" movies). The film itself is one of the funniest films you could wish to see, but their is a deeper universal story going on hear that certainly makes you consider the story of these two opposites attracting.
