In 1788, German poet Friedrich Schiller (Florian Stetter) falls for the shy, cash-strapped aristocrat Charlotte (Henriette Confurius) – only to soon realize that it’s Charlotte’s married sister Catherine (Hannah Herzsprung) who really lights his fire. Germany’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, BELOVED SISTERS – directed by Dominik Graf – plays like a deliciously entertaining mash-up of Jane Austen, BARRY LYNDON and THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF WEIMAR. 173 min. In German with English subtitles.

The legendary documentarian Frederick Wiseman (TITICUT FOLLIES, WELFARE) has long been obsessed with inner-workings of complex institutions. Here he turns his camera on London’s National Gallery, introducing us to administrators, curators, teachers, and docents, all trying to keep a tradition-bound organization relevant in the 21st century. The result is more than just a kalediscopic portrait of a great museum – it’s also an exhilarating, visually ravishing inquiry into the enduring power of art to alight all of our senses.
