An epic rock and roll spectacular from luminary filmmaker Baz Luhrmann explores the life and music of Elvis Presley with his distinctive dynamism. Austin Butler and Tom Hanks star.
A thoroughly cinematic drama, Elvis’s (Butler) story is seen through the prism of his relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). The film delves into the complex partnership between the two, spanning more than 20 years, from Presley’s explosive 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 (Olivia DeJonge). Also starring award-winning actor Helen Thomson (Top of the Lake: China Girl
) as Elvis’s mother, and Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge!
) as his father. All cinematically revealed with the trademark flair and spectacle that could only be a Baz Luhrmann film, Elvis
comes direct from Cannes 2022.
