Unbelievably, 2021 marks half a century since Harold and Maude first baffled and beguiled cinema goers in equal measure.
The blackest of comedies and the sweetest of romances, with a flawless cast and a stunning script. It’s taken years for Harold and Maude to be recognised for what it is: one of the most affecting and interesting movies of a decade that knew how to churn them out.
The story of an unlikely romance between 20 year old Harold (Bud Cort) and octogenarian Maude (Ruth Gordon) who meet at a funeral and find the joy in life again, is as startling, moving and funny as get out. All that and a peerless Cat Steven’s track too. You bring the hankies, we’ll bring the popcorn…
