Harold and Maude is a cult classic movie directed by Hal Ashby in 1971. The film, featuring slapstick, dark humour, and existentialist drama, revolves around the exploits of a morbid young man – Harold – who drifts away from the life that his detached mother prescribes for him, as he develops a relationship with septuagenarian Maude. The film wasn't well received on its release. However, with more and more appetite for quirky and humorous films, this film has proved to be a huge inspiration on similar movies, such as the recent Royal Tenenbaums and its director Wes Anderson.
