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 vulnerable 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.

English The costumes are great, the acting is unsurprisingly good (Jacob Elordi as Elvis is a hit), but the story is sterile. I know this is a film by the already mature Sofia Coppola, but still… Maybe I was expecting a return to the slightly wilder waters of Marie Antoinette's time? If you have already seen a romance or two, the development of Priscilla's relationship with Elvis will be fairly predictable without ever having heard of them before. Therefore, you have no choice but to look at the nice interior design. Thankfully, there aren’t any downright deaf spots, but for this intimate film being just under two hours long, I didn't learn noticeably more than I did last year from Baz Luhrmann about Priscilla's relationship with the King of Rock 'n' Roll.
