Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen

This internationally-acclaimed classic is a captivating portrait of the novelist and poet Leonard Cohen at age 30, before his breakthrough on the world stage as a popular singer-songwriter. The documentary follows Cohen as he travels from his then-home in Hydra, Greece, to his hometown of Montreal, where he “comes to renew his neurotic affiliation.” Cohen is seen reading his poems to a rapt crowd, hanging out with friends, strolling the streets of Westmount where he grew up, and staying in the threedollar- a-night hotel that serves as his “sanctuary.” The film reveals Cohen’s wit, lightness, and sense of humour. An intimate and illuminating look at the artist as a young man.
