‘Harold and Maude’ Movie Synopsis

Harold Chasen is a depressed, death-obsessed 20-year-old trust-fund baby who spends his free time attending funerals and pretending to commit suicide in front of his mother. At one such funeral, Harold befriends Maude, a 79-year-old woman who has a zest for life that Harold lacks. The two spend much time together, and she exposes him to the wonders life has to offer. Harold’s mom meanwhile wants him to marry well. He sabotage’s his mother’s attempts to set him up with a potential wife, and soon announces to her and friends that he is going to marry Maude. However, Maude has a surprise for Harold that is all too real.
