Phantom Thread’s Vicky Krieps gives an exhilarating performance in Marie Kreutzer’s irreverent period drama. Christmas, 1877, The Empress Elisabeth of Austria is turning 40. Renowned for her beauty, she undergoes daily privations to ensure she fits her wasp-waist corset and keeps her picture-perfect looks. But she is suffocating under the ceremony of the stuffy Habsburg court. Deciding she is incapable of carrying out the decorative role that has been assigned to her, she begins to carry out acts of rebellion. Taking liberties with history and full of anachronisms which pull at the surface of the story, Corsage reveals Elisabeth as a subversive and fascinating historical figure. “Beguiling…a knockout” The Times.
