Forty years after the death of Elvis Presley, director Jarecki takes Elvis’s 1963 Rolls Royce on a musical road trip across the South hoping to discover some truths about America today in the history of a country boy who lost his soul en route to becoming a king. Along for the ride are former friends of Elvis, musicians like Emmy Lou Harris and Greil Marcus and numerous celebrities, including Ethan Hawke, Ashton Kutcher and Alec Baldwin.ducer: Christopher Frierson, Georgina Hill, Eugene Jarecki, David Kuhn, and Christopher St. John

Language: English

The study of Elvis as both a man and a cultural icon for good and ill is told with equal measures of sympathy and scrutiny.” Leslie Felperin, The Hollywood Reporter

“The movie has the feel of an odyssey that’s also a party, as if Michael Moore had veered off an exit ramp and into the mad carnival of pop culture.” Owen Gleiberman, Variety
