First gathering of the Heidelberg Alumni U.S. (HAUS) Regional Chapter in Washington D.C
Goethe's Movie Night with HAUS Southern California

All Heidelberg alumni and friends: a new movie about Goethe's great love is about to open in Los Angeles.
Let's meet to see "Young Goethe in Love" on November 4th at The Landmark in West Los Angeles!

Here is a brief summary of the movie:

"Director Philipp Stölzl (North Face) returns to the very wellspring of Romanticism-Goethe's autobiographical masterpiece The Sorrows of Young Werther-and conjures up a beguiling and refreshingly innocent period romance. In 1772 Germany, the young and tumultuous Johann Goethe (Alexander Fehling, Inglorious Basterds) aspires to be a poet, but after failing his law exams he is sent by his father to a sleepy provincial court to mend his ways, clerking for Judge Kestner (Moritz Bleibtreu). But then the lovely Lotte (Miriam Stein) enters his life and sparks fly. However, the young lovers are unaware that her father has already promised Lotte's hand to another man. Fehling is wonderful in the role of Goethe, burning with a passion and intelligence that would turn his first romantic experience into a novel that was a sensation throughout Europe and would launch the Romantic movement."
