Based on “Came so Far for Beauty,” this 2005 documentary celebrates the remarkable life and work of the legendary Leonard Cohen.

Poet, singer / songwriter / icon Leonard Cohen is interviewed in his home about his life and times. The film is interspersed with archival photos and live performances from an eclectic mix of musicians he has influenced, including: Jarvis Cocker, Rufus & Martha Wainwright, Teddy Thompson, Nick Cave, and U2‘s Bono and The Edge.

Cohen speaks of his stately writing process; “savage criticisms” exchanged with fellow Montreal poets; the scene at the Chelsea Hotel; tea and oranges with the real Suzanne and more.
