After a sadistic hiring process, Empress Elisabeth takes Countess Irma as her new lady-in-waiting and they spend an idyllic summer on Corfu. But every summer must end, and when they return to Vienna, their lives change drastically. In her wild reinterpretation of the oft-told ‘Sisi’ myth, director Frauke Finsterwalder transports us to a world with women at its centre—their powerful and complex relationships and, ultimately, the power relations to which they are inevitably subject.
