YOUNG GOETHE!

DIRECTOR: Philipp Stölzl - GERMANY

Before Germany’s most famous literary genius wrote the hugely influential The Sorrows of Young Werther, the book that launched a thousand broken-hearted suicides, he lived its story of love lost. In Stölzl’s engaging historical drama, Alexander Fehling plays Goethe, who, having failed his law exams in 1772, takes a job clerking for Judge Kester (Moritz Bleibtreu). Bored, he continues to defy his father’s wishes by persisting in his writing, and one day he meets the lovely Lotte. Sparks fly, a courtship blossoms, love blooms—but Lotte is betrothed to another. “Sparkling cinematography, gorgeous costumes and sets, and a story of star-crossed love—these are just the ingredients needed to lovingly concoct a filmic biography chronicling the early years of a young man whose initial experience of romantic love would eventually alter the course of the literary world.”—Screen International. (102 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Baby (02), North Face (08).

Sponsored by The Nines.
