BELOVED SISTERS
DIE GELIEBTEN SCHWESTERN
2014, Music Box, 171 min, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Dir: Dominik Graf

The sisters of the title, unhappily married Caroline von Beulwitz (Hannah Herzsprung) and shy Charlotte von Lengefeld (Henriette Confurius), vow to share everything - even noted poet and playwright Friedrich Schiller (Florian Stetter). This complex romantic drama, set in late-18th century Germany, earned a Bavarian Film Award for cinematographer Michael Wiesweg’s gorgeous visuals. “Graf has created an unusually intelligent costume drama of bold personalities torn between the stirrings of the heart and the logic of the mind.” - Scott Foundas, Variety. In German and French with English subtitles.
