Lisa Marie Presley ‘went to tears’ by ‘Elvis’ biopic: ‘Absolutely perfect’

The daughter of the king of rock and roll has given director Baz Luhrmann’s “Elvis” her rare seal of approval.

Lisa Marie Presley, 54, praised the flick in an Instagram post on Saturday. Noting that she doesn’t post as much as she is and will “forever mourn the loss”—Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in 2020—she shared that the new film “is nothing short of spectacular.”

“Absolutely perfect,” she wrote, sharing that she’s already seen it twice. “Austin Butler beautifully transcended and embodied my father’s heart and soul. In my humble opinion, his performance is phenomenal and the finale is precise and respectful.

“If he doesn’t get an Oscar for this, I’ll eat my leg myself, haha,” joked Presley.

She continued that while her three grandchildren were also “overwhelmed in the best possible way” by their grandfather’s legacy, she was “filled with tears”.

“It breaks my heart that my son isn’t here to see it. He must have absolutely loved it too,” she said.

Luhrmann repeated Presley’s claims to his Instagram followers, posting the claim on Instagram, posting him on the platform.

Presley said, “In my life, there has been one disappointment after another in terms of people portraying my father… but let me tell you something.” “At this point, I tell you this with all my heart, it’s done right.”

Initial “Elvis” reviews have been mixed and do not reflect Presley’s enthusiasm. Variety called it “fizzy, delicate, impulsively active, compulsively watchable”, while IndieWire writer David Ehrlich was trash-talking everyone, including Tom Hanks, calling it “nightmare“as well as” delicately terrifying. He added that the “159-minute eyes”—which he gave a grade of “D”—is more about Colonel Tom Parker of Hanks, the “Love Me Tender” star’s long-time manager, and Butler’s hip-swizzling. Less about the singer. ,

“Elvis” hits theaters on June 24.
