1959. 14-year-old Priscilla (Cailee Spaeny) meets 24-year-old Elvis Presley (Jacob Elordi) for the first time at a US Military base party.
Enamoured by the charm and celebrity of Elvis, Priscilla begins a relationship with the rock’n roll superstar.
Upending her once-quiet life, she is taken to the grandiose surroundings of Graceland, and cast unceremoniously into the spotlight.
But the halcyon days are soon over, as the controlling, claustrophobic nature of their relationship and home life is soon evident – whilst Priscilla strives to live a life of her own, every aspect of her life, even down to her own appearance, is scrutinised and micromanaged by her partner and his family.
The latest shimmering masterpiece from the creative genius of Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, The Virgin Suicides), Priscilla is an unflinchingly honest adaptation of Priscilla’s memoir Elvis and Me.
A long-overdue cinematic tribute to her life outside of the shadow of the King, for which phenomenal breakout star Spaeny deservingly won Best Actress at the prestigious Venice Film Festival.
