Harold and Maude has to be one of my all time favourite films and the older I get the more significant it becomes. The story of Harold, an odd young man obsessed with death who attempts fake suicides, attends funerals and drives a hearse, much to the disgust of his socialite mother, who is trying to find him a wife. When Harold meets 79 year old Maude at a strangers funeral, his life changes, as she shows him how to make the most of his life.
I’m not going to tell you any more, as you simply have to see it for yourself. Both hilarious and poignant, Maude is a style icon and a role model for growing old and I am fine tuning my driving skills to be more like her!
