(PG) USA – 1 hr 31 min
1971 · d. Hal Ashby
Starring Ruth Gordon, Bud Cort
Harold (Bud Cort) is young, wealthy, and fixated on death. His routine of attending funerals and staging fake suicides is disrupted when he meets lively 79-year-old Maude (Ruth Gordon), sparking an unlikely friendship and romance. Hal Ashby’s quirky black comedy became (and remains) a quintessential cult classic, embodying the idiosyncrasy and non-conformist ethos of its era.
