Fourteen year old Priscilla Beaulieu (Cailee Spaeny, winner of Best Actress, Venice Film Festival) is thrust into the spotlight when the biggest star in America, Elvis Presley (Jacob Elordi), chooses her as his sweetheart. As the realities of fame and marriage to a man very different from his public image begin to close in on her, Priscilla must decide what kind of woman she wants to be- even if it costs her everything. Sofia Coppola has adapted Priscilla's memoirs into her own unique vision of a life beyond tabloid headlines, anchored by mesmerising performances from Spaeny and Elordi.
"A convincing and humane sketch of a young woman caught up in something vast and eternally defining."
"A transportive, heartbreaking journey into the dark heart of celebrity, and her finest film since Lost in Translation."
Coppola returns to form with her favourite themes of beauty's treachery and innocence lost with this shimmering, heartbreaking teenage dream. Exploring the intensity of young love and the pain of memory, she presents a delicate and restrained portrait of a girl who loved and waited for a man who could never see her as anything but a doll.
