The new motion picture Priscilla is based on the 1985 book Elvis and Me: The True Story of the Love Between Priscilla Presley and the King of Rock N' Roll, which was written by Priscilla Presley with Sandra Harmon. A television movie was adapted from the book in 1988 and Sofia Coppola adapted the latest version. The unusual love story begins with the first meeting between Priscilla and Elvis and continues through their divorce.
Actress Cailee Spaeny turns up the meekness of “Cilla” and has already earned the Volpi Cup for Best Actress in the role. Jacob Elordi towers over her as he is five inches taller than Elvis. He captures the essence of Elvis and when he stands in front of his classic black car to pick Priscilla up it is obvious why she would fall for his boyish good looks.
Lisa Marie Presley was reported to be concerned with this possible depiction of Elvis and what it would mean to his legacy and estate. Unfortunately, she passed away before she saw the end result, but it doesn't come off as a smear campaign from a bitter ex-wife in any way.
