Beloved Sisters

German filmmaker Dominik Graf (A Map of the Heart, The Invincibles) directs this high-tone, discretely erotic tale based (somewhat anyway) on the true story of sisters Charlotte and Caroline von Lengefeld, who both fell in love with post-Enlightenment writer and philosopher Friedrich Schiller. The idealistic (and rather emblematic of its late-18th century time period) ménage à trois devolves, as expected, into some third-act jealousy and betrayal. But the director mounts a lush, literate period romance, and his actors are committed to the emotional intensity of it all. In German and French with English subtitles. 138 minutes Unrated.
