ABOUT THE SHOW
Director-producer-cowriter Baz Luhrmann takes us on the moving journey of a rebel and an icon as America’s cultural landscape evolved over more than 30 years. Elvis celebrates the extraordinary life of a trailblazing artist, the loves and poignant losses he faced as a man and the timeless music and groundbreaking performances he gave the world. The film explores how Presley’s unprecedented rise to fame was sparked by Svengali Colonel Tom Parker, whose shortcomings were also primarily responsible for the singer’s tragic demise. Austin Butler and Tom Hanks co-star.
Elvis is nominated for eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor in a Leading Role (Austin Butler), Best Cinematography (Mandy Walker), Best Costume Design (Catherine Martin), Best Film Editing (Matt Villa and Jonathan Redmond), Best Makeup and Hairstyling (Mark Coulier, Jason Baird, and Aldo Signoretti), Best Production Design (Catherine Martin, Karen Murphy; Set Decoration: Bev Dunn), and Best Sound (David Lee, Wayne Pashley, Andy Nelson, and Michael Keller).
The screening will be followed by a conversation with featured talent Austin Butler and director, producer, co-writer Baz Luhrmann and cinematographer Mandy Walker recorded at an exclusive Film at LACMA screening.
