A cliche used to describe a couple in which one partner is significantly older than the other.

Taken from the title of a cult movie (1971, Hal Ashby) starring Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon. Intergenerational love affair between a 20 and 79 year old, culminating in an important life lesson. Has an excellent Cat Stevens soundtrack and stellar photographic/cinematic effects given the technology of the time. For many, the closing sequence (last 15 minutes) of the film qualifies as one of the best endings in modern film.
Man, that 85 year old widower and that bottle blonde are totally Harold and Maude!

The best love story ever. Period.
With the greatest soundtrack ever as well.

You know it's true.
Even Andy Warhol admitting to blubbering at the end of Harold and Maude.
