When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley, who has already become a megastar to millions, she discovers someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a vulnerable best friend, and a mercurial lover. Director Sofia Coppola returns to familiar ground but delves deep into Priscilla’s psyche and emotional evolution as the King of Rock-and-Roll’s better half.
“The isolation thrust upon Coppola’s heroines by feckless husbands and fathers results in, if not always liberation, self-discovery, newfound confidence, determination, and desire.” — Andrew Marzoni, The New Republic
“Melancholy young women searching for escape are one of Coppola’s favorite subjects, and Priscilla may be her most haunting endeavor thus far.” — Shirley Li, The Atlantic
