On the cusp of turning 40, relentlessly laced into corsets by her exasperated staff, the uptight world of the Austrian monarchy is the last thing Empress Sisi (Vicky Krieps) cares about. Decadence is far more exciting – so she heads off on a grand trip across Europe, including a stop in Northampton, to call on old friends (and old flames). But the strings tying her to royal duty continue to tighten, and her attempts to make life more exciting turn into acts of rebellion.

A vibrant, refreshingly mischievous take on the period drama with an award-winning lead in Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), CORSAGE is the stunning, stylish new film from acclaimed director Marie Kreutzer.

★★★★ “KRIEPS GIVES AN EXHILARATINGLY FIERCE, UNINGRATIATING PERFORMANCE” The Guardian
