Harold and Maude

Hal Ashby's 1972 countercultural touchstone may now seem somewhat adrift, since that dominant, Nixon-era culture has disappeared. Suicidal Bud Cort falls for lively Ruth Gordon, each of them learning valuable life lessons along the course of their, ahem, romance. (They don't actually bridge the 60-year January-December age gap by having sex.) One indication of how times have changed is the score by Cat Stevens, as he was then known. Another is how Cort, then dressed like a dweeb of his era, could almost pass for a Williamsburg hipster today. (PG) BRIAN MILLER
