According to the Cannes festival, the film "explores the life and music of 'The King' Elvis Presley (Austin Butler), seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley's rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis's life, Priscilla Presley." RIP Bappi Lahiri: Do You Know That Disco King’s Obsession With Gold Jewellery Had an Elvis Presley Connection?
