Irish Film Institute -PRISCILLA


Director: Sofia Coppola

113 mins, USA, 2023, Digital, F-Rated

Priscilla Beaulieu (Cailee Spaeny) is just fourteen years old when she meets Elvis Presley (Jacob Elordi) at a party on a US military base in Germany, 1959. Courteous, respectful, if a little melancholy, he sweeps the young girl off her feet, and before she knows it she is living a rarefied life in Graceland, with The King of Rock-n-Roll and his dad Vernon. Through Priscilla’s eyes, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame.
