Elvis’ story comes through his complicated relationship with his mysterious manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). As Parker puts it, the film delves into the complex dynamics between the two that spanned more than 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his all-time stardom, against the backdrop of America’s evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence. At the heart of this journey is one of the important and influential figures in Elvis’ life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge).
