This one goes out to all the lovers out there… and the rest of us, too. One of the funniest, sweetest and most quirky romances around, Harold and Maude defies convention. Rarely does a movie so preoccupied with death honestly show the true nature of love and life. And Ruth Gordon is amazing. Who doesn’t want to grow up to be such a free spirit?

Maude’s oddball railroad car is a dream of a dream, complete with smell-o-rama machine and is a perfect foil for Harold’s hearse driving, arm hacking ways. Total opposites on the outside, Maude’s geriatric grooviness and Harold’s death obsession prove that love is in what you feel, not what you see. As they say, if you want to sing out, sing out. –amy m.
