Synopsis
Baz Lurhmann’s style-fest of a pic combines a rockin’ sound track with fast-cutting visuals to create a guaranteed toe-tapper.

This joyous Musical/ Drama film explores the life and music of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley's rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis's life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

Reviews
“From an opening that cheekily evokes the dropped snow globe Citizen Kane to an Unchained Melody finale that had me crying in the chapel, Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis is a turned-up-to-11 treat.” The Guardian (UK)

“Elvis brings all of the glitz, rhinestones, and jumpsuits you’d expect in an Elvis film, but without the necessary complexity for a movie from 2022 about the King.” Rogerebert.com
