“What a character he was,” she noted. “There was two sides to Colonel; Jerry and I will witness both.”
While the film might be titled ElvisPriscilla shared that, at its heart, it tells the story of “Elvis and Colonel Parker’s relationship,” which began back in 1955 when he first discovered the singer and became his manager.
“The story, as we all know, does not have a happy ending,” she explained. “But I think you will understand a little bit more of Elvis’ journey, penned by a director who put his heart and soul and many hours into this film.”
Her high praise didn’t stop there. She added, “It is a true story told brilliantly and creatively that only Baz, in his unique artistic way, could have delivered.”
We’ll just have to see for ourselves when Elvis hits theaters on Jun. 24.
