The film has a 77% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an incredible 94% audience rating (with over 10,000 reviews).
Only Luhrmann could have directed this film as his unique style, swagger and love of music shine through in every frame. The film was nominated for eight Academy Awards and stars Austin Butler (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Tom Hanks (Saving Private Ryan), Helen Thompson (Bad Mothers), Richard Roxburgh (Moulin Rouge) and Olivia DeJonge (The Society). .
You can watch Elvis on HBO, Hulu, iTunes and Prime Video.
