Renowned filmmaker Nick Broomfield’s most personal and romantic film of his storied career. 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 a 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.

"NICK BROOMFIELD'S RIVETING DOCUMENTARY GIVES US A VIVID SNAPSHOT OF THE EARLY 1960s AND A COMPLICATED MYSTERIOUS LOVE STORY."

- Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"WHAT YOU'D IMAGINE THE LIFE OF A YOUNG FUTURE POET WOULD BE ON A GREEK ISLAND - DAYS OF WRITING, DRINKING, DRUGS, SEX AND SUN."

- Brian Tallerico, rogerebert.com

- John DeSando, It's Movie Time
