Put on your winged eyeliner and get your nail polish out because Sofia Coppola’s “Priscilla” is streaming on Max beginning Feb. 23, following its October theatrical release.
Based on the book “Elvis and Me” by Priscilla Presley, the A24 film stars Cailee Spaeny in the titular role, chronicling her marriage to Elvis Presley, played by Jacob Elordi. From their first time meeting in Germany to the life they shared at Graceland, “Priscilla” details the rise and fall of the iconic couple’s marriage while offering a different perspective on the king of rock ‘n’ roll as told through the eyes of his wife.

Spaeny received a Golden Globe nomination for best performance by a female actor. The film was also nominated for the Golden Lion at the 80th annual Venice Film Festival, with Spaeny winning the Coppa Volpi for best actress.
Named one of Variety’s Critic’s Picks, Owen Gleiberman wrote in his review of the film, “The daring thing Coppola does, given that we’re used to seeing even sophisticated biopics weave the lives they’re showing us into dramatic arcs, is to present the rise and fall of Priscilla and Elvis’s relationship as a diary, one that simply flows forward in a kind of objective Zen fashion, never trumping anything up. At moments you may wonder: Where are the arcs? But the arc is the whole movie — the tale of how the ebullient, soft-voiced rock ‘n’ roll idol who Priscilla thought she was falling in love with evolved into a pathological personality, though maybe he always was.”
