Hal Ashby directs this cult black comedy starring Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon. Harold (Cort) is a death-obsessed teenager who hangs around in cemeteries and drives a hearse. When he attends a funeral and meets his polar opposite Maude (Gordon), a life-loving 79-year-old, a strange love affair ensues. However, the offbeat nature of their pairing and their defiance of social convention soon causes upset all around. The cast also includes Vivian Pickles, Cyril Cusack and Charles Tyner.
