The film tells the story of the relationship between Canadian poet and musician Leonard Cohen and his Norwegian muse Marianne Ihlen. It follows the progression of their relationship from its early days in Greece, and its evolution through the period of “free love” and open marriage, to Cohen’s immense success as an artist.
It was produced by Broomfield through his Lafayette Films production banner with Marc Hoeferlin, Shani Hinton and Kyle Gibbon.
“Nick really creates cinema artistry around a story that is dear to him, and will undoubtedly find its way into the hearts of audiences,” said Jonathan Ford, EVP of sales and distribution at Kew, in a statement. “The Sundance premiere will be electric and we know this is just the beginning of a long, celebrated life for this film.”
