Movie: Harold and Maude

One of our all-time favorite movies is Harold and Maude. This cult-flick is a difficult one to explain, and most descriptions leave the impression of a disgusting love story. But it is full of excellent music, surprising humor, and a new-found appreciation for life and love. This movie will change your life, we promise!

Basically, Harold is a sadistic 17 year-old man who obsesses over funerals, hearses, and fake suicides intended to shock his over-bearing mother. Maude is a 79 year-old woman who steals cars, poses nude, and likes to smoke hookah. They meet at a funeral that neither of them know, and she takes him off on a grand adventure. She heals his depression and gives him a new outlook on life, and they fall in love during the process. But don't judge it on this point alone!!!

Quick vote: We really like this movie, it is one of our all-time favorites. If you haven't seen it, go check it out right now!!!

I've found myself in the same conundrum of trying to describe this movie without it coming off as some sort of a perv flick. It's beautiful!
