Vicky gives me the Krieps! I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist, as it’s always the truth. But in this case, The Krieps aren’t quite synonymous with The Creeps; instead, they’re more of an engine to generate empathy. Empress Elisabeth of Austria sure didn’t seem to fit in with anything that was expected of her. She tries to have her fun and to spread her joy to her kids, but then by the end of Corsage, she’s shooting up heroin more often than anything else. Weird movie to be eating chicken tenders and French fries during.

Grade: More Heroin Than I Was Prepared For
