Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla Presley offers a unique perspective on the love story.

Sofia Coppola brings Priscilla Presley’s perspective to the fore in her latest project, Priscilla.

This adaptation of Priscilla’s memoir, Elvis and meemerges as a subdued domestic drama that showcases Coppola’s signature flair for capturing the lives of the wealthy in a luxurious setting, markedly different from Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis biopic.

Priscilla stands in stark contrast to the bombastic presentation of Elvis’ life, shunning the spotlight on his concerts and recordings.

Instead, it delves into Priscilla Presley’s life, offering an intimate look at their relationship. Fortunately, Tom Hanks’ Colonel Tom Parker is nowhere to be found in this narrative.

Cailee Spaeny takes on the role of Priscilla Beaulieu in her younger years, and the film begins with her life on an American military base in Germany in 1959.

A chance meeting at a party hosted by one of Elvis’ army buddies begins their unique love story.

At the time, Elvis was a 24-year-old superstar in the military, while Priscilla was a 14-year-old schoolgirl.

One of the film’s intriguing departures from the conventional celebrity narrative is its portrayal of Elvis as someone who prioritized a platonic relationship with Priscilla for years, despite her willingness to take their relationship to a more intimate level.

The movie’s “intimacy coordinator” didn’t seem to have much in common in this context.
