Vicky Krieps shines as the Empress of Austria

Elisabeth, Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary, has everything any person could perhaps want, as they say — besides, as they also say, what she seriously would like: happiness.

If that appears like the kind of tale you’ve heard in advance of, that is because it is. But “Corsage,” Marie Kreutzer’s film, places a new spin on record (as in, dispenses with it) and interval parts in common.

In real life Elisabeth absolutely was not serenaded in the 19th century by a harpist singing the Rolling Stones’ “As Tears Go By.” (The Stones are not that old.) But it operates. Other bits of heritage are toyed with much more egregiously.

This, also, is not uncharted territory, as any person who has observed Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film “Marie Antoinette” can attest. But what makes “Corsage” come to feel so fresh and crucial is the functionality by Vicky Krieps in the title part.
