MARIANNE & LEONARD: WORDS OF LOVE
Directed by Nick Broomfield
Rated NR 97 minutes
The documentary starts on the Greek island of Hydra in 1960, where Leonard Cohen, then a struggling and unknown fiction writer, and Marianne Ihlen, a single mother with a young son, became part of community of expat artists, writers and musicians. Never-before-seen footage shot by Broomfield and legendary documentarian D.A. Pennebaker make for a unique portrait of an idyllic 1960’s bohemia. It was a time that left a lasting imprint on both Marianne and Leonard, whose friendship would last another fifty years before their deaths in 2016.
This is an insider’s fascinating meditation on the nature of genius and stardom and the toll they take on the naively optimistic.
