IU CINEMA: The King
A cross-country road trip in Elvis Presley’s 1963 Rolls-Royce, The King, is far more than a musical biopic; it’s a penetrating portrait of America at a critical time in the nation’s history and an unflinching investigation into the state of the American dream. From Memphis to New York, Las Vegas, and beyond, the journey traces the rise and fall of Presley as a metaphor for the country he left behind. In this groundbreaking film, Eugene Jarecki (Why We Fight, The House I Live In) paints a visionary portrait of the state of the American dream and a penetrating look at how the hell we got here. A diverse cast of Americans, both famous and not, join the journey, including Rosanne Cash, Chuck D, Emmylou Harris, and Dan Rather. The King was executive produced by Steven Soderbergh, Errol Morris, and Roseanne Cash. Contains mature content, including strong language, disturbing images, and drug references.
