Coming right off the heels of Elvis, another biopic about the famous singer starring Austin Butler and directed by Baz Luhrmann, there may be some confusion around the plot of Priscilla.

Another highlight of the upcoming Priscilla movie is the talent its employing.

The film is directed by Sofia Coppola with a cast led by Cailee Spaeny in the titular role, Jacob Elordi as Elvis and Ari Cohen and Dagmara Domińczyk as Priscilla’s parents. Priscilla Presley herself is also credited as an executive producer on the movie.

The film is scoring well with critics on Rotten Tomatoes, landing an 83% Fresh score from over 250 reviews. Spaeny has also been nominated for a Golden Globe award and is in talks for a potential Oscar nom.

One thing to note, however, is that the Presley biopic does not actually use any of Elvis’ music in its soundtrack. Instead, the French indie band Phoenix and Randall Poster helped to create the original music of the film.

All in all, it sounds like this is one film to definitely check out during awards season. Catch it from January 18.
