Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love

"Laugh and cry and cry and laugh" as you take in the beautiful and troubled 1960s romance of poet and musician Leonard Cohen and his greatest muse, Marianne Ihlen. The two met serendipitously in their twenties on the idyllic Greek island of Hydra, when Leonard was a struggling artist, and continued their affair over the years as he transformed into one of the world's most renowned songwriters. Through old photos, archival footage, and a few interviews, trace the love story that gifted listeners with songs like "Bird on the Wire" and, of course, "So Long, Marianne."
