Still image from the film Harold and Maude

2017–2018 IU Cinema Audience Choice Film. Overwhelmingly favored in IU Cinema’s 2017 Audience Survey, Harold and Maude is a romantic, dark comedy about living life to the fullest. Twenty-year-old Harold (Bud Cort) is obsessed with death, passing his spare time visiting junkyards, watching building demolitions, and attending funerals of strangers. One random funeral leads him to Maude (Ruth Gordon)—a septuagenarian who shares his funeral-hopping hobby. Their unlikely friendship soon evolves into an even more taboo romance. With gallows humor considered far too dark for many critics and audiences in 1971, the film was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 1997. (35mm Presentation)
