‘Priscilla‘ is a drama movie written and directed by Sofia Coppola, starring Jacob Elordi, Cailee Spaeny and Kamilla Kowal.
This A24 production tells the story when Priscilla Beaulieu, a teenager, first encounters Elvis Presley at a party, and she discovers a side of him that is completely different from the meteoric rock-and-roll superstar he is known as. In private moments, he becomes an exciting crush, a companion in times of loneliness, and a vulnerable best friend. Sofia Coppola, through Priscilla’s perspective, reveals the hidden aspects of a great American legend in the long courtship and tumultuous marriage of Elvis and Priscilla. Their journey takes them from a German army base to Elvis’ dream-like estate at Graceland. This heartfelt and exquisitely detailed portrayal explores the complexities of love, fantasy, and fame.
