A teenage Priscilla Beaulieu (Cailee Spaeny) meets an already world-famous Elvis Presley (Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi), in this highly anticipated biopic from Sofia Coppola.
When Priscilla Beaulieu and Elvis met in 1959, he was 24-year-old stationed at a US Army base in Germany, and she was the 14-year-old step-daughter of an Air Force officer. Instantly drawn into his orbit, Priscilla falls in love despite the protests from her parents. A tender romance with a famous handsome idol is a part of every teenage girl’s fantasy. Dreamy and hopeful, she imagines a life full of adventure and deep connection. But when Priscilla moves to Graceland, she realizes that instead of being treated like a partner, she’s become a prop — doted on but no longer allowed to make her own decisions, forced to stay at home while her husband lives an explosive life at the centre of everyone’s attention. Behind closed doors, she discovers that the world’s biggest heartthrob — and the man she has come to love — has a sometimes violent temper and controlling nature.
Priscilla, like many of Sofia Coppola’s films, is an examination of a girlhood interrupted; of being put into extraordinary circumstances at an age when most people are just beginning to figure themselves out. In this intimate portrait of the relationship between Priscilla Beaulieu and Elvis Presley, we are given a private look at a very public relationship.
