Romy Schneider rocketed to teen movie stardom in the 1950s playing Sissi, the future Austrian Empress Elisabeth. But fame brought with it a turbulent life, one Schneider candidly recounted to France’s Stern magazine in 1981. Filmmaker Emily Atef reconstructs the circumstances surrounding that interview in this powerful black-and-white docudrama featuring an unforgettable turn from Marie Bäumer as the ill-fated actress.
