Empress Elisabeth of Austria (Vicky Krieps) is idolized for her beauty and renowned for inspiring fashion trends. But in 1877, 'Sisi' celebrates her 40th birthday and must fight to maintain her public image by lacing her corset tighter and tighter. While Elisabeth's role has been reduced against her wishes to purely performative, her hunger for knowledge and zest for life makes her more and more restless in Vienna. She travels to England and Bavaria, visiting former lovers and old friends, seeking the excitement and purpose of her youth. With a future of strictly ceremonial duties laid out in front of her, Elisabeth rebels against the hyperbolized image of herself and comes up with a plan to protect her legacy.

Elevated by its brilliantly well-thought-out, anachronistic soundtrack, Corsage is an expertly crafted study in female rage against the establishment.
Linda Marric, The Jewish Chronicle
The destination may be startling but, thanks to a magnetic star turn from Krieps, the voyage is never boring.
Jocelyn Noveck, Associated Press
[A] bold, visually striking and ingeniously anachronistic portrait of an empress in complicated rebellion.
