Here's my contribution to Crazy 4 Cult:
Name:.....The Sunflower Lady and the Wild Daisy Boy
Cult film:..Harold and Maude
I was inspired by this dialogue between Harold and Maude:
Maude: I should like to change into a sunflower most of all. They're so tall and simple. What flower would you like to be?
Harold: I don't know. One of these, maybe.
Maude: Why do you say that?
Harold: Because they're all alike.
Maude: Oooh, but they're *not*. Look. See, some are smaller, some are fatter, some grow to the left, some to the right, some even have lost some petals. All *kinds* of observable differences. You see, Harold, I feel that much of the world's sorrow comes from people who are *this*,[she points to a daisy]
Maude: yet allow themselves be treated as *that*.[she gestures to a field of daisies]
