BELOVED SISTERS [Die geliebten Schwestern]
2014 Oscar® Selection, Germany
Maverick filmmaker Dominik Graf explores the passionate, unconventional relationships between the poet and playwright Friedrich Schiller (Florian Stetter) and the von Lengefeld sisters: Charlotte (Henriette Confurius), who would become his wife, and sister-in-law Caroline (later von Wolzogen) (Hannah Herzsprung), who would go on to become a novelist and his first biographer. With great feeling for life as lived in the late 18th century, Graf creates a stirring portrait of three vibrant individuals, each timelessly modern in their artistic identities and lust for life. Official Selection, 2014 Berlin, Toronto Film Festivals.
