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, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame. Inspired by Priscilla Presley’s memoir, the director sought to examine “how Priscilla becomes who she is and what womanhood means to her and the generation after her. She experiences so many of the same things that all young women experience on their journey into adulthood, but in such a grand and unusual environment. Priscilla’s story is both unique and incredibly relatable”.
