Young Goethe in Love
The young and tumultuous Johann Goethe (Alexander Fehling) aspires to be a poet but after failing his law exams, is sent by his father to a sleepy provincial court to mend his ways. Lotte (Miriam Stein) enters his life and nothing is the same as before. The dramatic and unfulfilled love between the poet and Lotte was the template for his masterpiece, "The Sorrows of Young Werther." German w/English subtitles.
