Priscilla (M)

Golden Globe nominee for Best Actress (Cailee Spaeny).

Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola and indie powerhouse A24 come together for Priscilla to create a captivating and empathetic adaptation of Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir 'Elvis and Me'. 

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, Academy Award winner 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.

Starring Cailee Spaeny as Priscilla Presley and Jacob Elordi as “an immediately convincing” (IndieWire) Elvis, the viscerally emotive biopic has received rave reviews from critics following its Venice Film Festival Premiere last month with Spaeny winning the Best Actress award and being praised by Rolling Stone as an “absolute marvel” for her performance.

★★★★½ "Cailee Spaeny is astonishing" FLICKERING MYTH

★★★★½ "Sofia Coppola's Priscilla lands with grace. An intimate portrait that captures a young woman's dream-like wonder crashing into life's realities." CINEMATIC REEL

★★★★ "Spaeny delivers an eternal portrayal of Priscilla, embodying her innocent nature as a kid to a grown woman reaching her confidence" RENDY REVIEWS

★★★★ "Sofia Coppola paints an absorbing, intimate portrait of Elvis’s wife" GUARDIAN

★★★★ "[a] stylish, sensitive portrait of life with Elvis" OBSERVER UK

★★★★ "a quietly affecting, sympathetic tribute to the kind of person who is a supporting character in most biopics." BBC.COM

★★★★ "Coppola’s relationship drama hands agency back to its young heroine." TIME OUT

★★★★ "Priscilla is another Coppola masterwork, a study of a woman in a gilded cage with two performances that are some of the best in Coppola's filmography." SCREEN RANT

★★★★ "Sofia Coppola provides Cailee Spaeny a star-making turn, and Priscilla Presley the space to tell the other side of the Elvis legend." DENOFGEEK

★★★★ "In a film that is gorgeous to behold, the writer and director nails the feeling of a being a giddy teenage girl, swept along by the real-life fantasy of being desired by one of the most famous men on the planet." METRO.CO.UK

★★★★ "it’s the polar opposite of [Baz Luhrmann’s]' Elvis' both aesthetically and emotionally. If Luhrmann captures the whole lotta shakin’, Coppola is more concerned with the end of lonely street for The King’s beleaguered wife." CINEVUE
