Late in the 19th century, Empress Elisabeth of Austria-Hungary – known as Sisi (Susanne Wolff) - is living in an aristocratic women-only commune in Greece. Countess Irma (Sandra Hüller) is sent there to be Sisi’s companion, and she is captivated by the eccentric and extravagant recluse. But the outside world is reaching out to break Sisi. And no matter how much Irma and Sisi resist, in the end they are left with only one fatal path that will bind the two women together forever.

    "Lush, irreverent... with plenty of its own panache. [T]his splendidly mounted production should comfortably connect with audiences... distinguished by the spotlight it throws on Countess Irma Sztáray, the Empress’s final lady-in-waiting, played with cunning and exuberance by the dependable Sandra Hüller."

    "Frauke Finsterwalder offers a thought-provoking and entertaining glance at the famous empress. The timelessness of this tale is further enhanced by the incredible, anachronistic costumes by Tanja Hausner. "
