New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

Closes December 20
Encore! Sofia Coppola's dreamy drama about Priscilla Presley

When teenage Priscilla Beaulieu meets Elvis Presley at a party, the man who is already a meteoric rock-and-roll superstar becomes someone entirely unexpected in private moments: a thrilling crush, an ally in loneliness, a vulnerable best friend. Through Priscilla’s eyes, Sofia Coppola tells the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage, from a German army base to his dream-world estate at Graceland, in this deeply felt and ravishingly detailed portrait of love, fantasy, and fame.

A transportive, heartbreaking journey into the dark heart of celebrity, and Coppola’s finest film since Lost in Translation.

Rolling Stone

Taken from Priscilla’s own memoir, the film is cunning in its teasing out of her late husband’s damaging insecurities. But, as often with this director, it is the luscious textures that most engage.
