Based on the novel by Thomas Mann. Charlotte Kestner, the love of Goethe’s youth, became famous because she was the real-life Lotte represented in his renowned The Sorrows of Young Werther. At forty-four years of age she travels to Weimar to see Goethe again. The posturing of high society and Goethe’s personal history lead her to an unexpected conclusion. Dramaturge (later Studio Director) Walter Janka was befriended by the Thomas Mann family, making this adaptation possible.
