Movie Review: PRISCILLA

Movie Review: PRISCILLA


Director: Sofia Coppola
Starring: Cailee Spaeny, Jacob Elordi, Ari Cohen, Dagmara Dominczyk, Tim Post

It’s hard not to watch Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla and not make comparisons to Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis that came out just last year. And yet, they take two polar opposite approaches to their subjects. Coppola’s attempt to give voice to Priscilla Presley opens with her at a young age spending time on the US Air Force base in Germany in 1959. She’s played by Cailee Spaney who you may remember from Mare of Eastown. She’s sitting at a diner countertop doing her homework when she’s courted to attend a party at Elvis Presley’s house. She’s only in the 9th grade and under the guardianship of her parents who reluctantly agree to the party. Jacob Elordi stars as Elvis who becomes smitten despite their massive age difference, as he’s wanting to connect with someone from back home. A few years pass before Elvis and Priscilla can reclaim their relationship and defy everyone around them. The film tracks their love story from the beginning until the point she finally decides to leave him. In theaters
