CORSAGE (m)

Empress Elisabeth of Austria is idolised for her beauty and renowned for inspiring fashion trends. But in 1877, ‘Sissi’ celebrates her 40th birthday and must fight to maintain her public image by lacing her corset tighter and tighter.

While Sissi’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, she rebels against the overstated image of herself and comes up with a plan to protect her legacy.

Lushly decorated and costumed, and cheekily anachronistic with its 21st century touches, Austrian writer-director Marie Kreutzer’s Corsage explores the contrast between Sissi’s ceremonial public image and her personal desires. In a Cannes Best Performance-winning role, the ever-charismatic Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread) portrays a woman restrained by the clothing and expectations of society and doing what she can to break free and take control.

Winner of Best Film at London Film Festival
