Directed by Baz Luhrmann and starring Austin Butler, Elvis depicts the life of American music icon Elvis Presley, from his childhood to becoming a rock and movie star in the 1950s. Elvis’s story is seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into the complex dynamic between the two spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley.
