It’s 1877 and Elisabeth – Empress of Austria, Duchess of Bavaria and Queen of Hungary – has just turned 40. Feeling lonely, bored and old, “Sissi” (as her subjects fondly refer to her) defies her husband, Emperor Franz Joseph, and attempts to withdraw from public life, instead wearing a veil over her face, subjecting her body to strenuous physical training and obsessing over her weight. She’s rebelling against the restraints of royalty and who the world believes her to be. (IMDB)
