The standard rock biopic gets all shook up in ELVIS, thanks to a welcome injection of Baz Luhrmann’s trademark dazzling energy and style.

Baz’s latest global smash tells the story of Elvis Presley (Austin Butler) through the prism of his complicated relationship with enigmatic manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). As told by Parker, the film delves into their complex dynamic, which spans over 20 years.

ELVIS charts Presley’s rise to fame and unprecedented stardom, all set against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Also central to that journey are other significant and influential people in his life like his parents (Richard Roxburgh and Helen Thomson) and Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).

Nominated for 8 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Actor.
