Young Goethe in Love

Young Goethe in Love

Germany 1772 - the young and tumultuous Johann Goethe 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. At first, he tries to do his best and wins the praise and friendship of his superior Kestner. But, then Lotte enters his life and nothing is the same. However, Johann is unaware that Lotte has already been promised to Kestner by her father. The dramatic and unfulfilled love between the poet and Lotte was the template for his masterpiece "The Sorrows of Young Werther."
