Summary
Deadpan rich boy Harold (Bud Cort) stages elaborate suicide tableaux to get the attention of his mother, but she keeps planning his brilliant future for him instead. Obsessed with the trappings of death, Harold freaks out his blind dates, modifies his new sports car to look like a mini-hearse, and attends funerals, where he meets the spirited Maude (Ruth Gordon). An eccentric to the core, Maude lives exactly as she pleases, with avid collecting and nude modeling among her many pursuits. To the disgust of Harold's relatives and the befuddlement of his shrink, Harold falls in love with her. As lilting Cat Stevens tunes play on the soundtrack, Maude teaches Harold a valuable lesson about making the most of his time on earth. Nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical (Ruth Gordon) and Best Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical (Bud Cort) at the **Golden Globes**. Nominated for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles (Bud Cort) at the **BAFTA Awards**. *"A philosophical black comedy for grandparents and grandchildren, or what Walt Disney and Lucille Ball might have thought up if they'd taken courses in the Absurd at UCLA." - Robert Mazzocco, **The New York Review of Books***
