This is one of those love stories that has “giant hulking tragedy” written all over it, isn’t it?
Alan Rickman stars as Hoffmeister, an industrialist who hires Freidrich Zeitz (Richard Madden) as his personal secretary. Zeitz quickly falls in love with Hoffmeister’s enchanting wife, and a quiet affair begins to bloom – right under Hoffmeister’s watchful eye. The film is scheduled for U.S. release later this year.
