Behind every king there is a Queen, this new year Sofia Coppola‘s Priscilla will show the side of Elvis life from the eyes of his queen Priscilla Presley. MUBI have released the full UK Trailer which showcases there was two sides to Elvis life, the other from his wife.
This film is based on 1985 memoir Elvis and Me written by Priscilla Presley and Sandra Harmon. Cailee Spaeny (Mare of Easttown, Bad Times at the El Royale) as Priscilla, Jacob Elordi (Euphoria, The Kissing Booth) as Elvis Presley. It’s no secret their relationship was not a marriage made in heaven and this film promises to show the turbulent times as much as the good times. This looks sophisticated equally a slice of pop culture seen from a different perspective, will it show Elvis Presley less likable persona?
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.
Rest of the cast includes Emily Mitchell, Jorja Cadence, Dagmara Domińczyk, Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll, and Luke Humphrey.
Priscilla will get 35mm previews on 26th December in the UK and Ireland. Then on 1st January 2024 on general release.
