With her rockstar-studded soundtracks and iconic depictions of the nuances of girlhood, Sofia Coppola is the perfect director to take on the Elvis Presley story from his wife Priscilla’s point of view. Priscilla follows teen Priscilla through her journey of falling in and out of love with the King of Rock and Roll. Priscilla (Cailee Spaeny) is a shy 14-year-old girl living with her parents on a military base in West Germany. One day, she gets a coveted invitation to meet the American superstar who is serving overseas: Elvis Presley (Jacob Elordi). “I’d have to ask my parents,” she responds — a stabbing reminder of how young she was when her relationship with Presley started. The two meet and instantly it feels like the world stands still. It really does feel like love. Coppola’s rendition of the Presley story can’t help but be compared to Baz Luhrmann’s biopic from 2022. While that film focused on Elvis the performer, Priscilla depicts Elvis the person.Once again, Sofia Coppola captures how it feels to be a woman unrealistically idolized by a romantic partner — instead of simply respected.—Arizona Republic
“Stealthily devastating…”—New York Times
“Melancholy young women searching for escape are one of Coppola’s favorite subjects, and Priscilla may be her most haunting endeavor thus far.”—The Atlantic
