Sofia Coppola's PRISCILLA, starring Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi

 

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.

 

'PRISCILLA' is in cinemas January 18.

 


Review: Really enjoyed this movie, although as an Elvis fan for a long time, it puts a new spin on what gones on behind closed doors, and I'm not sure how I feel about Elvis now.  While no one would ever question Elvis' dedication to music, it does shine a new light on his personality in an unfavourable way, as he controls a young and older Priscilla.  I wonder how true it is.
