by Marie Kreutzer Gala Premieres

Empress Elisabeth of Austria is a fashion icon and beauty symbol. At the side of her husband, Emperor Franz Joseph, however, she is forbidden from expressing her own opinions. But when "Sissi" celebrates her 40th birthday, she has had enough of living up to expectations. Instead of having her corset tightened a centimetre each day, the young empress wants to turn her back on the restrictive lifestyle of the Viennese court. Driven by her insatiable hunger for knowledge, she travels to England and Bavaria, visiting former lovers and political allies. Determined, she begins to shape her own legacy. CORSAGE is a bold and timely reflection on a woman's ability to take action in 19th century Europe. Vicky Krieps shines in the leading role as the bold empress.
