"One of the oddest and most original love stories ever filmed...Ashby displays an extraordinary sensitivity to the spectrum of human experience." - Matt Zoller Seitz, Criterion

This cult classic pairs Harold, a dead-pan disillusioned 20-year-old obsessed with suicide, and Maude, a fun-loving 80-year-old eccentric. They meet at a funeral, and develop a taboo romantic relationship, in which they explore the tired theme of "the meaning of life" with a fresh perspective.
