Opens March 13 Academy Awards 2015 - Official Foreign Language Submission In this sweeping yet intimate romantic drama, which is also Germany's official Oscar® entry for Best Foreign Language Film, acclaimed director Dominik Graf illuminates the lives of two bold young women and one of classical literature’s most celebrated figures with charm and contemporary energy. As the German Enlightenment flourishes in Weimar, vibrant Caroline von Beulwitz (Hannah Herszsprung) finds herself in an unhappy marriage to provide for her mother and shy younger sister Charlotte von Lengefeld (Henriette Confurius). When both sisters fall for outspoken writer Friedrich Schiller (Florian Stetter), their desire ignites a journey of shared passion and creativity. Charlotte and Schiller marry so that the lovers may pursue their ménageà- trois under the guise of convention, but as Caroline reveals herself to be a talented author in her own right, the trio's fragile equilibrium is threatened and the sisters’ once unbreakable bond is irrevocably changed. “Enthralling and gorgeously mounted. An unusually intelligent costume drama of bold personalities torn between the stirrings of the heart and the logic of the mind.” Variety "A surprisingly brisk, absorbing film, shot and cut with the speed of a thriller.” New York Magazine Showtimes: Fri: 730 Sat & Sun: 415pm & 730pm Mon-Thur: 7pm Dominik Graf / 2014, Germany / Color 170min / Blu-ray
