Melbourne readers ave an opportunity to receive a double pass for the acclaimed film chronicling the love affair between Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen.

MARIANNE AND LEONARD: WORDS OF LOVE is 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 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.

To win a double pass simply email and what do Leonard Cohen’s songs mean to you in less than 25 words.

The film will screen at Melbourne’s Cinema Nova Level 1, 380 Lygon Street, Carlton from December 12.

Winners will just need to collect their passes from the Candy Bar at Nova.
