Director Baz Luhrmann explores the life and music of the hip-shakin' pelvis-rockin' Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), seen through the eyes of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks).

The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley's rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in mid-century America.

Along the way, we see his relationship form with one of the most significant and influential people in his life - namely Priscilla Presley played by Olivia DeJonge.

Known for his equally maximalist films Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge, Luhrmann's take on the life of arguably the very first rockstar is truly just as colourful and bombastic as you might expect!

"A fizzy, delirious, impishly energized, compulsively watchable 2-hour-and-39-minute fever dream -- a spangly pinwheel of a movie that converts the Elvis saga we all carry around in our heads into a lavishly staged biopic-as-pop-opera." Owen Gleiberman, Variety
