About the film:
World Premiere at the 2023 Venice Film Festival where Cailee Spaeny was awarded Best Actress.
When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a gentle best friend.
Through Priscilla’s eyes, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame.
“outstanding… a transportive, heartbreaking journey into the dark heart of celebrity”
—Marlow Stern, Rolling Stone
