Elvis with Baz Luhrmann in Person

Tuesday, Nov 29, 2022 at 7:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Free screening and discussion with Baz Luhrmann

Director-producer-cowriter Baz Luhrmann’s bright, blazing biopic of a cultural icon is both the moving personal story of an American rebel and the tale of a shifting cultural landscape over the course of more than 30 years. Austin Butler gives a revelatory performance as the trailblazing performer, while Tom Hanks plays Colonel Tom Parker, the svengali who brought about the singer’s unprecedented rise to fame—and was responsible for his tragic demise. Thrillingly shot and edited, Luhrmann’s film pays tribute to the excesses of American culture as much as to the extraordinary life and music of the artist at its center.
