Harold and Maude
A melancholy young man and a 79-year-old woman form a firm friendship in this emotive drama.
Dir Hal Ashby
With Ruth Gordon, Bud Cort, Vivian Pickles
A young man with a death obsession develops a firm friendship with a 79-year-old female optimist, who shares his enjoyment in attending random funerals. This cult classic startled audiences upon release with its dark humour and was ignored by the awards bodies, but it remains a refreshing, joyful film that – underneath its talk of mortality and death – delivers the positive message of living life to the full.
The screening on Wednesday 20 February will be introduced by Justin Johnson, Lead Programmer.
