After getting curb-side take out from Matteos [Grilled Nectarine Salad and Blackened Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa], Sharon and I watched Elvis. This may be an early start to our annual journey to watch the Oscar nominated films.
Elvis is a biographical musical drama film directed by Baz Luhrmann. He co-wrote the screenplay with Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce, and Jeremy Doner.
The film follows the life of rock and roll icon, singer, and actor Elvis Presley. It is told from the perspective of his manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
It stars Austin Butler in the title role with Tom Hanks as Parker. Olivia DeJonge as Priscilla Presley, Helen Thomson as Gladys Presley, Elvis' mother, and
Richard Roxburgh as Vernon Presley, Elvis' father costar.
This is a very good film. Butler's performance is excellent. Like Rami Malek's performance in Bohemian Rhapsody, Sharon is predicting Bulter will win the Best Actor Oscar. The movie was praised by both Priscilla Presley and Lisa Marie Presley. The film motivates me to read a biography about Elvis.
After watching the movie, Sharon and I listened to The Ringer's The Big Picture podcast review. They didn't like it...
