Young Goethe in Love Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Director [[Performer~P598973~Philipp Stolzl~philippstölzl]] takes the helm for this biographical drama set during the formative years of legendary German poet, playwright, and author [[Performer~P309862~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe~johannwolfgangvongoethe]], as he grappled with his growing talents and experienced his first brush with true love. Germany: 1772. Aspiring poet Goethe ([[Performer~P527065~Alexander Fehling~alexanderfehling]]) has just failed his law exam when his father ([[Performer~P141109~Henry Hubchen~henryhubchen]]) sends him packing for a provincial court to study undisturbed. Though Goethe's future in law begins to look a bit brighter when he gains the respect of high-ranking court official Kestner ([[Performer~P195239~Moritz Bleibtreu~moritzbleibtreu]]), his personal life starts to falter when he falls for Lotte ([[Performer~P472508~Miriam Stein~miriamstein]]), a pretty young woman whose father has secretly arranged her marriage to another suitor. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
