Summary A teenager with a death wish, and a 79-year-old high on life find love in this cult black comedy. Deadpan rich boy Harold keeps staging 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. An eccentric to the core, Maude lives exactly as she pleases, with avid collecting and nude modelling among her many pursuits. To the disgust of Harold's relatives and the confusion of Harold's shrink, Harold falls in love with her
