Elvis: Actual Life vs. Film Variations

Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” premiered on June 24, and followers lastly obtained to see Austin Butler tackle the titular position of the legendary singer. After listening to Butler’s voice transformation in interviews, seeing him pose with Priscilla Presley on the Met Gala, and watching him emulate Elvis Presley’s signature dance strikes within the film’s trailer, we could not wait to see his portrayal. The film focuses on the story of Elvis and his deceitful supervisor, Colonel Tom Parker, performed by Tom Hanks, in addition to Elvis’s relationship with Priscilla, performed by Olivia DeJonge.

The film is a signature Luhrmann fever dream — campy, overwhelming, and stuffed with extra in all the things from the costumes to the cinematography. It is a number of enjoyable, however such an over-the-top illustration of a real story does not all the time inform the entire reality. Some inaccuracies are fairly clear (like, clearly Doja Cat’s music did not exist within the Fifties), whereas different elements are exhausting to acknowledge until you are tremendous conversant in Elvis’s story. That is why consultants on Elvis are clarifying what the film obtained mistaken — and what actually occurred. Forward, discover out the reality about Parker, Elvis and Priscilla’s marriage, and, after all, whether or not Elvis actually fired his long-time supervisor in an onstage rant.
