Harold and Maude (1971)

Director: Hal Ashby
Starring: Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon
Awards: Nominated for two Golden Globes

Summary:  A young man, obsessed with death, meets an old woman obsessed with life and begins an unlikely love affair is how I always describe it. One of the strangest film romances ever made, it’s also one of the most honest and most revealing.  One of director Hal Ashby’s first efforts finds him navigating well worn territory, but in a way not seen before.  I have far too many fond memories of this film to want to spoil them for you here, just take my word for it…if you haven’t seen this you need too.

Other Notable Works by This Director:  The Landlord(1970), Shampoo (1975), Being There (1979)
