About this event

Based on the memoir Elvis and Me, Priscilla is a portrait of the whirlwind romance and relationship of Priscilla Beaulieu and Elvis Presley.

Sofia Coppola (Lost in Translation, Marie Antoinette) brings her customary visual style to bear on this humanistic portrait of a young woman growing inside a gilded cage.

When teenager Priscilla Beaulieu meets rock-and-roll star Elvis Presley at a party on a German army base in 1959, the two form a deep connection. Allies in loneliness, they become best friends. As their long courtship grows into a turbulent marriage, Priscilla - portrayed with extraordinary poise and strength by Cailee Spaeny - experiences isolation and betrayal by Elvis (Jacob Elordi) as the pressures of fame cause his behaviour to become more erratic.
