Austria, late 19th Century. Countess Irma Sztáray (Sandra Hüller) leaves her home in Hungary to become the lady-in-waiting for Empress Elisabeth of Austria, known to those close to her as Sisi (Susanne Wolff). Irma falls under the spell of the rebellious Empress Sisi, and the two form a strong bond during a summer retreat in Greece. However, once home in Vienna, their lives take dramatic and irrevocable turns.
A “lush, irreverent” (Variety) new take on the life of Empress Elisabeth, SISI & I stars Academy Award-nominated Sandra Hüller and Susanne Wolff. “Vividly shot” ( and featuring a biting sense of humor, SISI & I is a “thought-provoking and entertaining glance at the famous empress.” (Cineuropa).
