In her dramatic journey from Swedish schoolgirl to Hollywood legend to New York recluse, Greta Garbo kept the world in her thrall.
But behind her glamorous screen persona was an insecure country girl yearning for the snows of her homeland and the one true love she left behind. With a jazzy, sultry score, Garbo & Me traces the elusive film icon as she conquers the studio system, negotiates the tabloid minefield, and juggles a string of lovers, both male and female, while struggling to protect her cherished privacy.
